Saints - on this day in history, March 11
9:00am Monday 11th March 2013 in Sport
Saints On This Day - March 11 1950: Blackburn 0 Saints 0 Midfielder Ernie Stevenson made his debut in an otherwise uneventful Division Two clash at Ewood Park.
1961: Saints 1 Plymouth 1 Saints dropped to seventh in the Division Two table after letting a lead slip against mid-table Plymouth. Tommy Mulgrew headed the home side into the lead shortly before half-time.
1969: Nottingham Forest 1 Saints 0 Paul Richardson scored the only goal at The City Ground six minutes from time.
1970: Saints 0 Liverpool 1 Gerry O’Brien made his league debut for the Saints as they lost a nervy top flight game at The Dell. Alun Evans scored the only goal of the game.
1972: Saints 1 Wolves 2 Eric Martin produced an inspired display but it wasn’t enough as Saints crashed to their fourth straight defeat which sent them tumbling towards the Division One relegation zone.
Martin saved a 24th minute penalty from Jim McCalliog, only for the man who would later sign for Saints and help them win the FA Cup to score three minutes later.
Mick Channon levelled, before Taylor grabbed a second half winner for the visitors.
1977: Fulham 1 Saints 1 Saints extended their unbeaten run to six Second Division games with a point at Craven Cottage.
Trevor Hebberd had headed the visitors in front on what was Bobby Stokes’ final appearance for the Saints. Fulham equalised shortly into the second half through John Lacy.
1978: Saints 2 Crystal Palace Two goals from sub Tony Funnell was enough to keep the Saints on course for promotion from Division Two.
The striker scored his first on the 27th minute before adding a second late on as the Saints continued their fine form which kept them third in the table.
1986: QPR 0 Saints 2 Stuart McManus scored on his debut as Saints recorded their first league away win of the season with an impressive display at Loftus Road.
Glenn Cockerill scored the other Saints goal, while McManus went onto feature just one more time for Saints.
1989: Charlton 2 Saints 2 Saints fought back from 2-0 down as they recorded a much needed point after collecting just five points from the last 40 available.
Charlton took a 2-0 lead through Rob Lee and Paul Williams with only 35 minutes.
But Rod Wallace delightfully chipped in before Paul Rideout smashed home a leveller with 15 minutes remaining.
1992: Saints 1 Crystal Palace 0 Matt Le Tissier scored a fine goal as Saints recorded their second win on the bounce as they looked to pull themselves away from the wrong end of the Division One table.
This victory was the second in a run of six straight top flight victories.
2000: Tottenham 7 Saints 2 A Stefan Iversen hat-trick humiliated Saints and Glenn Hoddle on his emotional return to White Hart Lane.
Saints twice led, through Jo Tessem and debutant Tahar El Khalej, the latter having signed from Benfica for £350,000 earlier that week.
One of Spurs’ goals was an own goal from defender Dean Richards, who the following year joined Tottenham for £8.1m from Saints.
2006: Crewe 1 Saints 1 Peter Madsen scored for Saints in a dour Championship stalemate at Gresty Road, with Crewe levelling in the 78th minute through striker Luke Rodgers.
2008: Saints 1 Leicester 0 Saints recorded their first win in ten Championship fixtures with an ultra-important victory over Leicester City at St Mary’s.
This victory, gained with a Stern John strike in the 76th minute, proved pivotal in Nigel Pearson’s Saints surviving and Leicester dropping down to League One a few weeks later.
