Southampton face a trip to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 14 out of 21 times.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in February 2003, the Rovers carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Premiership match.
