The Hatters are due to restart their 2019-20 campaign on Saturday week when Preston North End visit Kenilworth Road, in the revised Sky Bet Championship fixture schedule released by the EFL today.


That fixture, which should have taken place on Saturday 14th March and was the first to be postponed when football was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is scheduled to kick-off at 3pm on Saturday 20th June.

We will follow that a week later with a trip to south Wales to take on Swansea City, with another away day three days later against table-toppers Leeds United at Elland Road.

The fixture list follows the original intended sequence prior to the suspension, so a home double header with Reading and Barnsley on Saturday 4th and Tuesday 7th July is due to be followed by the trip to Huddersfield on Saturday 11th.

QPR are scheduled to come to the Kenny on Tuesday 14th July, before the final away game of the campaign at Hull City on Saturday 18thJuly is followed by a home date with Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday 22nd July.

Please note that all fixture dates and kick-off times are subject to change due to possible selection for live broadcast, a TV selection for an opposing club causing a knock-on effect, or by prior agreement between the two clubs involved.




The EFL have confirmed 11 fixtures that have been selected for Sky Sports coverage over the first three rounds following the restart. The Hatters’ games against Preston, Swansea and Leeds are not among them.
