We can confirm that this Saturday's Sky Bet Championship match against Watford at Kenilworth Road will kick-off at the earlier time of 12.30pm.

The first home derby for 15 years was originally scheduled for 3pm, but has been brought forward as a mark of respect, and to avoid a clash with the funeral of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

All EFL matches are being moved so that they will not be taking place at the same time as the service at Windsor Castle.

The league also confirmed this morning that all Championship matches on the final day of this season, Saturday 8th May, will kick-off at 12.30pm, and that the 2021-22 fixtures will be released on Thursday 24th June at 9am.
