#OnthisDay Tues 11th Sept 2001

#SaintsFc achieved their first win since Stuart Gray took permanent charge, beating south cost neighbours Brighton 3-0 in their first visit to the Withdean Stadium. The second round of the league cup had now become a one off with no second leg but Southampton cruised to victory with two goals from Anders Svensson and one from James Beattie. But the match was overshadowed by the terrorist attacks across the Atlantic.
