Norwich City’s scheduled Premier League trip to Aston Villa has been switched for live television coverage and will now take place at Villa Park on Sunday, March 2 (Kick-off 4.30pm).

Chris Hughton’s squad were set to visit the Midlands for their latest reunion with former boss Paul Lambert 24 hours earlier, but the clash has been moved and will kick off at a slightly later time on Sunday afternoon following the Capital One Cup final at Wembley between Manchester City and Sunderland.

City drew 1-1 at Villa Park last season but lost the corresponding home fixture earlier this campaign 1-0 at Carrow Road. Lambert has yet to lose against his former employers since leaving Norfolk in 2012.

The two clubs have been embroiled in a transfer stand off over Wes Hoolahan’s future in recent days. Villa’s original enquiry earlier in the January window sparked Hoolahan to hand in a transfer request which was swiftly rejected by the Canaries.

  • While this cant be blammed on Hughton I am going to anyway just because I can! Totally ruined our weekend away in Birmingham. We'd all planned and arranged accomodation for the weekend an then they change it to a blooming sunday kick off but even worse a 4:30 kick off. totally taken the pee out of our plans. Now it looks like a much more expensive stay over in Southampton or a (6th for me) return to Craven Cottage just for the day on train. How disapointing.

  • Sky have obviously given their usual consideration to travelling fans in making this decision.

  • Sky don't give a jot about fans as long as they can keep raking the money in.

  • Matt - I think Sky got wind of your plans. They have also ruined my nephews visit to Norwich for the Tottenham game in February. They have had to cancel as well.
