Head to Head Records: Away v Southampton

Newcastle United go into a difficult game at Southampton on the back of reaching the FA Cup Quarter-Final for the first time since 2006.

Southampton's season began poorly and many understandably wrote off the Saints following their 9-0 home defeat to Leicester back in October. However, if Rugby League has taught us anything, it would one simple saying, "never write off the Saints". The team by the south coast have been rewarded for persevering with Ralph Hassenhuttl and will almost certainly remain a Premier League team next season.

With the focus on Saturday, the statistics do not read well when we take the trip St. Mary's Stadium and The Dell. Our only win at Southampton since February 1972 was Graeme Souness' first game in charge of Newcastle back in September 2004. The winning goal that day was scored by then new signing Stephen Carr, in what became his final career goal.

On the subject of goals, it was in the reverse fixture of this game back in December when goals from Jonjo Shelvey and Federico Fernandez helped Newcastle come from behind to take all three points. That late winner from Fernandez was Newcastle's 100th home league goal against the Saints.
