Southampton prepare to entertain Birmingham City at St. Marys on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Saints are clearly on top, winning 63.16% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at St. Marys was just last season, in August 2003, when they played out a goalless draw in a Premiership match.
