Previous encounters: Southampton

While Burnley may not have won many games in Southampton, they are unbeaten at the Saints new ground, St Mary’s, writes James Bird.

Last time out

Burnley were battling to make the play-offs in spring 2009 when they made the journey down to Southampton. It was a hard fought tie where the Clarets twice came from behind to earn an all important point at St Mary’s. The home side took the lead after just 11 minutes as Bradley Wright-Phillips’ shot was deflected beyond Brian Jensen in the Burnley goal. The Clarets equalised for the first time in the game on 32 minutes after Martin Paterson was brought down in the Southampton box, Graham Alexander duly converted from the spot. The score wasn’t to stay level for long though as Brian Jensen made a point blank save from Jason Euell before David McGoldrick fired home from inside six yards on 44 minutes. Southampton had a chance to put the game beyond all doubt when Rhys Williams tugged Euell’s shirt in the box, but Jensen guessed the right way to stop McGoldrick’s penalty attempt. The Clarets took full advantage of the let off as Clarke Carlisle scored in the six yard box after Robbie Blake had delivered a free kick into the Saints box.

One for us

Steven Caldwell scored his second goal as a Claret to give Burnley all three points at St. Mary’s in early 2008. It was Owen Coyle’s side’s ninth away win of the season, which ensured the Clarets’ highest points total in six years. Kyle Lafferty was missing due to needing an emergency operation to have his appendix removed. The only goal of the game came in first half injury time as Robbie Blake’s corner found Caldwell completely unmarked in the area at point-blank range.
