Footymad preview History of the West Ham United v Southampton fixture

Southampton travel to take on West Ham United at Boleyn Ground on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Saints will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 24 and win only 9 of the 44 games.

The last time the two teams met at West Ham United was back in December 2002, over five years ago, with Southampton inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Hammers in a Premiership match.
