Norwich City's penultimate Championship home game of the regular season against promotion rivals Middlesbrough will now take place on Friday, April 17 (KO 7:45pm) for live television coverage.

Alex Neil's side were set to host table-topping Boro the following day at Carrow Road but the fixture has been brought forward for live Skysports coverage.

City have already featured on Skysports in four live fixtures this season with Ipswich's derby visit to Norfolk later this month also scheduled to be broadcast.

Norwich crashed to their heaviest league defeat of the campaign when they lost 4-0 on Teesside before Christmas. City trail Boro by seven points ahead of this weekend's latest fixtures.
