Leeds and Sky Sports have been inseparable this season, with the broadcaster regularly opting to show several Whites fixtures.

Our Easter Monday clash with Brentford is no different, as United’s penultimate away day of the season has now been pushed back so that it can be shown live on Sky Sports Football.

The original Championship schedule had kick-off at Griffin Park penciled in for 3pm, but will now take place later in the day at 5.45pm, potentially forcing Leeds supporters to re-arrange their travel plans for April 22.

Those facing changes will want to, though, as the Brentford trip could go a long way in deciding who ends the campaign in an automatic promotion place.

It may not be the final game changed to accommodate Sky Sports, either, with the last batch of live games set to be announced no later than April 5.

For now, though, the Brentford game will make it 21 live Leeds games on Sky this term, more than any other Championship side – West Bromwich Albion have had the second most with 17.

In contrast, Rotherham have been selected the least with two live games during their relegation-threatened season, with Preston, Hull, Wigan, Millwall, and Bolton all chosen three times.
