The final Edinburgh derby of the scheduled Championship season has been moved to Sunday, April 12 with a 2.15 kick-off live on Sky Sports.

The match at Easter Road, which was originally scheduled for the previous day, will be the last derby of the campaign unless Hibs and Hearts meet in the promotion play-offs.

Hearts’ abandoned match with Rangers has also been given a new date. It will kick off at 12.15 on Sunday, April 5 (Easter Sunday) and will be broadcast on BT Sport.

The original match on Friday, January 16 at Ibrox was called off after 24 minutes due to a snow-laden and frozen pitch with the score tied at 0-0.

Hibs’ home match with Rangers has also been switched. The clash, to be screened live on Sky Sports, now takes place on Sunday, March 22 with a 12.45pm kick off rather than a day earlier as was originally scheduled.
