Footymad preview History of the Southampton v Crystal Palace fixture

Crystal Palace pack their bags to visit Southampton at St. Marys at lunchtime on Monday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 21 and win only 7 of the 35 games.

The previous match played between the two at St. Marys was within the last three years, in April 2009, the Saints carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Championship match.
