Blackburn Rovers’ trip to Burnley moved due to TV coverage

Rovers’ trip to Burnley in the East Lancashire derby has been rescheduled due to television coverage.

The fixture at Turf Moor was initially scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 12 but it will now take place a day later with a 12pm kick-off time. It will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

The fierce rivals haven’t met in league action since March 2016, although they did face off in the Carabao Cup the following season.

A new date has also been confirmed for Rovers’ trip to Wigan Athletic, which was initially postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The match will now take place on Tuesday, October 11 with a kick-off time of 7:45pm at the DW Stadium.

The Latics are currently 12th in the table as they aim to build on last season’s promotion from League One.

Meanwhile, Burnley’s trip to Sheffield United on Saturday, November 5 will now kick-off at 12:30pm. This change is also due to Sky Sports coverage.

The Blades sit at the top of the Championship table, three points above second-placed Norwich City, having lost just one game so far.

Both Rovers and Burnley have had promising starts to the new campaign, sitting seventh and fourth in the table respectively after 10 games.
