Sky set for the Turf again

Last updated : 31 December 2004 By Tony Scholes

This time it is the home match against Sunderland in the first week in March and as was the case with the Derby match it will be brought forward to the Friday evening.

Originally scheduled for Saturday 5th March the Mackems will now be at the Turf on Friday 4th with a 7:45 kick off as the Clarets receive another £60,000 boost from the television company.

Again with it being Friday it will probably mean a number of empty seats, particularly in the cricket field stand, that would have been in use on the Saturday but overall it should mean some more money for the club.

Now all we need to do is start winning again in front of the cameras – and it would be good to start in a week’s time.
