Yet another Leeds United Championship fixture moved for TV coverage

Leeds will take on Burnley at Turf Moor in April, on Sky Sports.

This season has seen Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino become increasingly embroiled in a tense clash with Sky Sports over television coverage.

As reported by the Daily Mail at the end of December Cellino refused Sky cameras entry to Elland Road for a fixture with Derby County.

Leeds fans have also become increasingly frustrated with the constant TV coverage - as it often sees changes in plans for spectators who have already bought tickets.

In January the rescheduling of a match against Middlesbrough saw further tension between both parties. A large group of Norwegian fans set to come and watch the game were left in limbo after the decision, as reported by The Mirror.

Sky Sports however appear to have no qualms in poking the bear, as yet another Leeds game has been moved for TV coverage.

Burnley's official website yesterday reported that the April 9th fixture at Turf Moor will be moved from a 3pm kick-off to a 12.30pm start and broadcast on Sky Sports.

Whilst not the most dramatic of changes some fans will again be negatively impacted and it remains to be seen how Cellino feels about the latest TV switch.
