Preston game is latest to be moved

Last updated : 03 January 2002 By Tony Scholes

Action from last season's 3-0 win over Preston
Our home game against Preston has today been switched from Saturday 16th March to the Sunday 17th with a provisional kick off time of 6:15 p.m. The kick off time does need to be agreed by the police and this could bring about a rescheduling to an earlier time.

We have already had two 6:15 kick offs, on the opening weekend of the season at Sheffield Wednesday and then in the home game against Manchester City. The home game against West Brom in February is also set to be played at 6:15.

This will be our third game in succession against the Moyes' boys to be covered live. Last April we beat them 3-0 in a Friday night game on the Turf in front of the Sky cameras and then just last month ITV Sport, who are covering the game in March, were there to see Arthur Gnohere score twice in a 3-2 win.

I think we can expect other games to be moved for television coverage before this season comes to an end.
