Two of Norwich City's matches have been selected for live coverage by Sky Sports.

The Canaries' trip to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, September 22 has been moved back to a 5.30pm kick-off after being selected by Sky.

Daniel Farke's team do not have a midweek game following that match so it will have little effect on their next game, at home to Wigan Athletic the following Saturday.

The home Championship clash with Aston Villa on Tuesday, October 23 will also be broadcast by Sky but the Carrow Road game remains a 7.45pm kick-off.

In the same fixtures last season Norwich lost 4-1 at QPR on Easter Monday but bounced back with a 3-1 home win over Villa in their next game.

The changes follow both East Anglian derby games being moved to midday Sunday kick-offs, and Sky have subsequently confirmed that the first derby of the season – at Portman Road in September – will not be screened live.
