History of the Norwich City v Southampton fixture

Southampton travel to take on Norwich City at on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Saints will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 22 and win only 9 of the 40 games.

The last time the two teams met at Norwich City was back in February 1995, over five years ago, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Norwich City have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Canaries have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Southampton's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. The Saints's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Norwich City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 13 games have yielded only 8 points. Southampton are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 11 points from 13 matches.
