Norwich City's home Championship clash with Bristol City has a new date, after being selected for live coverage by Sky Sports.
The Carrow Road encounter has been pushed back a day to Wednesday, January 20 and will kick-off at 6pm.
Canaries supporters will be unable to attend the game due to the Covid-19 pandemic but throughout this campaign season ticket holders have received free passes for the iFollow online streams, other than for away games that kick-off at 3pm on a Saturday.
Otherwise, match passes have been available to purchase for £10. City are yet to confirm those iFollow details but last month's 2-0 home win over Cardiff was a Saturday lunchtime kick-off due to Sky coverage and season ticket holders were still provided with free passes on that occasion.
The knock-on effect was that iFollow match passes were not available to purchase - although Now TV sell similar passes for 24-hour access to Sky Sports, so that situation can be remedied without too much trouble.
Daniel Farke's team won 3-1 at Bristol City in October, thanks to a brace from Teemu Pukki and a fine goal from Emi Buendia.
The Robins currently sit 10th and four points adrift of the play-off places having lost four of their last five games.
