The BBC have changed their scheduling following the death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The game, chosen for live coverage, had been moved from Saturday to the Friday night with the programme starting at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm kick-off.

It has been replaced with a ‘BBC News special’ with “continued coverage from BBC News following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh”.
