Match Stats - Southampton v Fulham 05.01.05

last updated Wednesday 05th January 2005, 2:46 PM
Big match facts from BBCSport FULHAM have never won a top flight match on Southampton soil. They've lost 19 League visits and drawn six. Their only victory was 1-2 in the old Second Division on 26 October 1935.
  • Chris Coleman may see this as an opportunity to improve a dismal away run that has seen a 0-1 win at fellow strugglers Norwich, surrounded by three defeats.
  • The Cottagers have drawn four and lost 12 away League matches against the Solent side since their only victory 69 years ago. Victory here would secure a first ever League 'double' over the Saints, having won the reverse fixture in September, through Tomasz Radzinski's first ever League goal for the club.
  • Saturday's 3-1 New Year's Day victory, home to Crystal Palace, followed three defeats on the spin for Fulham.
  • If he figures, Steed MALBRANQUE will be playing on the eve of his 25th birthday.
  • If he participates, Luis BOA MORTE will be playing against his former club.
  • BOA MORTE is a double shy of 50 goals for English clubs (four for Arsenal, one for Southampton and 43 for Fulham).
  • When next involved from the opening whistle, Lee CLARK will be making his 150th start for the Cottagers.
  • If he plays, Zat KNIGHT will be making his 100th appearance for the Londoners.
SOUTHAMPTON welcome Fulham to St Mary's and aim to score against the Londoners for the first time in four Premiership meetings.
  • Harry Redknapp desperately needs a first home win as Saints boss. In the two games staged at St Mary's since his controversial arrival, the Solent side have let a two goal lead slip to draw 2-2 with Middlesbrough, and been held to a goalless stalemate by Charlton.
  • The Saints are defending an unbeaten home Premiership record against Fulham, having won one and drawn two so far. The second of those stalemates was goalless last season.
  • Pressing for a first win in nine Premiership games.
  • Drawn three and lost five in the highest League since beating Portsmouth 2-1 at St Mary's on 13 November.
  • Scored one goal in the last three.
  • Kept just one clean sheet in the last 11 League outings.
  • Drawn two and lost three Premiership engagements under Harry Redknapp.
  • If involved, Rory DELAP will be making his 100th Premiership appearance for Southampton.
  • If on the field at kick off, Paul TELFER will be making his 100th Premiership start for the Saints.
