West Ham United travel to the south coast this Sunday looking to continue their good recent form against Southampton.

The Hammers took four points off the Saints in their two league encounters last season with an emphatic 4-1 win at the Boleyn Ground followed up later in the campaign with a 1-1 draw at St Mary's.

However West Ham are yet to win away against Southampton in five attempts since they moved from The Dell in 2001.

Here, we take a look at six memorable away wins for the Hammers on their previous trips to Southampton.

Premier League
25 November 2000

West Ham's last visit to The Dell produced their last away win against Southampton in the 2000/01 season.

Going into the match the Hammers occupied eleventh place but following this entertaining match moved into the top ten.

Frederic Kanoute and Stuart Pearce both scored to give the Hammers a half-time lead, overturning a Matt Oakley goal which opened the scoring. James Beattie equalised for the hosts, but in the 69th minute Trevor Sinclair popped up with the winner.

Southampton suffered another defeat when they visited the Boleyn Ground later in the season, but still finished above the Hammers who ended the season 15th.

One of West Ham's seven away wins in the 1993/94 season came against the Saints, continuing their strong start to the season following promotion the previous year.

A clean sheet here followed shut-outs against Oldham Athletic and Arsenal in their previous two fixtures, as they built a solid platform for victory.

At the other end Trevor Morley and Lee Chapman both netted to give the Hammers three points, two of 27 goals the pair would accumulate during the season. A comfortable 13th place finish followed for West Ham whilst the Saints staved off relegation by a single point.

In another high-scoring affair between the two sides it was West Ham who overcame the previous season's top-flight runners up.

Two goals from Paul Goddard and one from Alan Dickens set the Hammers on their way to a first victory of the season.

A strong Autumn followed where they reached the heights of fifth before eventually slumping to 16th place, a couple of points clear of relegation.

FA Cup third round
4 January 1975

This FA Cup third round win was the start of West Ham's victorious run to the trophy, the club's second triumph in the competition.

Whilst the Saints were a division below John Lyall's top-flight Hammers, they nevertheless faced a stern challenge.

In the end, goals from Frank Lampard and Bobby Gould were enough to see off Southampton and begin a run in which the Hammers defeated Swindon, QPR, Arsenal and Ipswich before beatting Fulham 2-0 in the final. Southampton, of course, would win the FA Cup the following year, 1976, as a Division Two side.

The Hammers secured a vital win over the Saints late in the 1970/71 season as they beat off the threat of relegation.

There were goals for Tommy Taylor and Geoff Hurst as West Ham won in front of nearly 20,000 fans at The Dell.

Southampton went onto secure seventh place in the league whilst the Hammers finished one place above the drop zone.

One of just two away wins for West Ham in the 1951/52 season, this game helped them finish one place above the Saints.

Bert Hawkins and Harry Williams buried the goals which gave the Hammers victory at The Dell.

Both teams finished with 41 points but West Ham finished just ahead of the Saints in twelfth place thanks to a superior goal difference.
