Head to Head Records: Home v Southampton


So, Ralph, how close do you think Sunday's match will be? Picture courtesy of Football365.

One of the longest journeys football fans in England will ever have to make is the journey between Newcastle, the northernmost Premier League side, and Southampton.

The distance between the two clubs spans 329 miles. It can be argued that the excessive mileage might have a negative effect on the performance of the players of both sides. On the 98 occasions that the two sides have met in their history, the away team has only won 9% of occasions.

Both teams go into Sunday's game on the back of hugely important victories. Newcastle took all three points away from Bramall Lane on Wednesday night to end Sheffield United's long unbeaten run. Southampton, on the other hand, are in a recovery mode following a poor start to the season. The Saints, on Wednesday, beat fellow relegation rivals Norwich to take them out of the relegation zone.
