Norwich City’s Premier League trip to Sunderland has been moved to Sunday, March 17 with a 1.30pm kick off time after being selected for live broadcast on Sky Sports.

The Canaries were originally set to face Martin O’Neill’s side at 3pm on Saturday, March 16 but the match will now take place on the new date to complete a televised double between the two sides this season.

The switch also means that the last five meetings between the two teams will have taken place in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
