1959: Saints 0 Brentford 6 Saints suffered their worst ever post-war home defeat, conceding five goals in a nightmare first half in Division 3 (South). Both Pat Parker and Sam Stevens were never to play for the Saints again.
1963: Cardiff 3 Saints 1 Saints fell 2-0 down inside 34 minutes before George O’Brien reduced the arrears from 30 yard. Cardiff sealed the win with six minutes remaining.

1985: Chelsea 0 Saints 2 Second half goals from David Armstrong and Danny Wallace ensured the Saints earned victory at Stamford Bridge in front of a crowd of 15,202.
1991: Crystal Palace 2 Saints 1 Geoff Thomas scored twice in the space of three second half minutes for Palace, before Glenn Cockerill reduced the arrears. Palace went on to finish third in the old First Division.
1993: Blackburn 0 Saints 0 In a game of few chances for either side, it was the beginning of a torrid end to season for Ian Branfoot’s Saints as they won just two in their final ten fixtures.
