Swansea City travel to take on Southampton at St. Marys on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 21 out of 28 times.
The last time the two teams met at Southampton was amazingly over twenty years ago, in March 1983, the Saints carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a First Division match.

Recent respective form guides
Southampton need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. Saints have conceded a disappointing 9 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.
Swansea City's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 2 have been let in at the wrong end.
Southampton are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 27 points from their 29 games thus far. Swansea City lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola Championship, picking up 44 from their 29 games so far.
