History of the Wolverhampton Wanderers v Southampton fixture

Southampton travel to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 26 games played, Saints have recorded 6 wins, and Wolves have come away with 12 victories.

The last time the two teams met at Wolves was well over fifteen years ago, back in November 1984, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a League Cup match.
