Richard Key had suggested very strongly that they would be back as he closed the programme on Friday but it was thrown into doubt when the Exeter City v Manchester United replay was scheduled for the same night.

There’s been a change around though and Conference club Exeter will now stage their game a day later with the BBC selecting it for coverage.

It is good news for the Clarets who feared they were set to miss out on the £150,000 television fee on top of the losses sustained because of the postponement on Friday.

The game will now be screened on Sky Sports 1 and will kick off at 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday 18th January.
