Norwich City’s Good Friday home Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday will kick off at 7:45pm for live television coverage.

The orginal kick off time on Friday, April 19 has been pushed back from 3pm after the latest Skysports live television selections were announced on Wednesday morning.

Norwich hammered the Owls 4-0 earlier in the season and the Carrow Road return against Steve Bruce’s play-off hopefuls will now be broadcast to a nationwide audience.

City are in the middle of a run of seven television fixtures in eight games, which continues on Wednesday night against Hull City. The away trip to Wigan Athletic was also put back a day to Sunday, April 14 (KO midday) last week for live television coverage, with the club announcing reduced ticket prices and discounted coach travel.

The Canaries are unbeaten in their last 13 league matches which have been shown live on Sky Sports, stretching back to a 2-0 home win over Brighton in April 2017, shortly before Farke’s arrival the next month.

City have now been picked 13 times by Skysports this season, with last week’s 1-0 win over Swansea at Carrow Road the latest televised success.
