Friday update: Newcastle United now have 4 Live TV games scheduled

5 years ago

Friday sees confirmation that there is now another fixture to add to the schedule of live TV games for Newcastle fans.

Sky Sports announcing that they have moved the Cardiff  game to a 7.45pm kick-off on Friday 28 April for live broadcasting.

Not the greatest of timings on a Friday night for one of the most difficult travels of the season!

This adds to Sheff Wed away, Leeds at home and Preston at home as ones to be shown by Sky.

This leaves only the last game of the season (everybody plays at noon on Sunday 7 May) against Barnsley, which could still be chosen for live TV but won’t have the time/date changed.


Saturday 1 April – Newcastle v Wigan (3pm).

Wednesday 5 April – Newcastle v Burton (7.45pm)

Saturday 8 April – Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle (5.30pm) SKY SPORTS

Friday 14 April – Newcastle v Leeds (7.45pm) SKY SPORTS

Monday 17 April – Ipswich v Newcastle (3pm)

Monday 24 April – Newcastle v Preston (7.45pm) SKY SPORTS

Friday 28 April  – Cardiff v Newcastle (7.45pm) SKY SPORTS

Sunday 7 May – Newcastle v Barnsley (12 noon)
