Leeds United have announced that April's Championship fixture against Brentford at Griffin Park has been moved for television coverage.

The game against the Bees will still take place on Monday 22 April (Easter Monday), but as it has been picked to be shown live on Sky Sports, it will now kick off at 5:15pm, later than originally scheduled.

Leeds have seen quite a few of their league fixtures rescheduled for live coverage this term and, as it stands, there are three of their games which will be showing on television before the end of the campaign.


This Saturday's crucial clash between the Whites and fellow promotion chasers Sheffield United has also been chosen for TV coverage, with the Blades' visit to Elland Road kicking off at 12:30pm for the occasion.

Another Yorkshire derby, against the Blades' Steel City rivals Sheffield Wednesday, will also be shown on television, and as such will kick off at 5:30pm on Saturday 13 April, and then comes the televised Brentford game nine days later.

Leeds published an article with the news, which they also shared on their Twitter account:
