Footymad preview History of the Southampton v Crystal Palace fixture

Southampton are ready to welcome Crystal Palace to St. Marys at lunchtime on Monday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Saints are clearly on top, having won 21 and lost 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.
