Chris Hughton's return to Carrow Road with Brighton and Hove Albion has been moved to a Friday night kick-off so it can be screened live by Sky Sports.

The title-chasing Seagulls were due to take on the Canaries in the final stages of the Championship season on Saturday, April 22, in a 3pm kick-off.

The match has been brought forward to 7.45pm on Friday, April 21 by Sky, with the broadcaster no doubt hoping to potentially capture a key part of Brighton's promotion push.

Hughton's team are currently second in the table, level on points with leaders Newcastle, and six points clear of third-placed Huddersfield.

City were thrashed 5-0 at Brighton in October in a disastrous performance which saw Hughton get the better of his former club on that occasion.
