Saints On This Day - March 16 1957: Saints 3 Brentford 3 Terry Paine made his league debut for the Saints in this thrilling game at The Dell. The away side were two up in 13 minutes before Saints halved the deficit through John Flood. Brentford extended their advantage soon after before goals from Tommy Traynor and Derek Reeves rescued a point.
1968: Saints 0 West Ham 0 Both sides fought out a goalless stalemate at a wet and windy Dell.
1984: Saints 2 Liverpool 0 Saints recorded their fourth win on their bounce as they beat Liverpool on a Friday evening in the first live televised game at The Dell.
Both goals were scored by Danny Wallace, the first an amazing scissor kick that was voted the Goal of the Season. Wallace headed a second five minutes from the end against a Liverpool side that would go on to win the title.
1985: Saints 0 Stoke 0 Rock bottom Stoke arrived at The Dell having not won an away game all season, and it remained that way after a bore draw.
1991: Saints 3 Everton 4 A seven goal thriller between Saints and Everton left the losers 18th in Division 1.
Dave Watson opened the scoring, but Saints levelled through Neil Ruddock.
Mike Milligan put Everton back in front, only for a Mick Newell own goal to restore parity again.
Newell scored for his own club and Tony Cottee made it 4-2, before Alan Shearer set up a tense finale.
1996: Manchester City 2 Saints 1 Saints had an injury time goal disallowed as they nearly fought back to earn a point at Maine Road.
After falling 2-0 down, Paul Tisdale scored his only first team goal to give Saints some hope.
Gordon Watson was then sent off in a frantic finale before referee Jeff Winter disallowed a Saints second deep into injury time.
Both City goals were scored by Georgi Kinkladze, one of which saw him beat five Saints players in a mazy run before chipping the ball over Dave Beasant. It was voted runner-up in the Goal of the Season poll.
2002: Saints 2 Leicester 2 Marian Pahars scored twice, including a penalty in the 87th minute, as Saints grabbed a point after being 2-0 down.
Brian Deane scored twice in the opening 25 minutes for the Foxes.
