Five games changed for television coverage
The first set of television games included just our home game against Watford, but today the broadcasters have confirmed that games against Arsenal, Southampton, West Bromwich Albion and Manchester City will be shown live as will the League Cup tie at Accrington.
Accrington will be our first television appearance of the season. That news was leaked yesterday by their chairman Andy Holt in a tweet to David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd and the game will now be on Wednesday 24th August, kicking off at 7:45 p.m.
With the Watford game, we’ll have three successive games on Sky with the home game against Arsenal moved to Sunday 2nd October with a 4:30 p.m. kick off and two weeks later, after the international break, we go to Southampton for a 4 p.m. kick off on Sunday 16th October.
Into November and there are two successive fixtures set to be televised. Our trip to West Brom will now be played on Monday 21st November, kicking off at 8 p.m. and five days later we face Manchester City at home in front of the BT cameras with a 12:30 p.m. kick off although that one is still subject to change due to their European commitments.
All of those changes are now in the Fixtures which can be found on the top menu.Follow UpTheClarets:
