THIRD HOME GAME OF THE SEASON TO BE PLAYED LIVE ON SKY SPORTS

2 July 2015

BURTON Albion’s third home game of the League One season will be broadcast live on Sky TV.

The Brewers Pirelli Stadium clash with Midlands rivals Coventry City has subsequently been put back 24 hours and will now kick off at 2.30pm on Sunday, September 6.

It will give Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s reshaped Burton Albion squad an early chance to shine.

Assistant manager David Oldfield said: “We are hopeful that the fans will really enjoy the season and playing clubs like Coventry demonstrates the challenge we are going to have in League One.

“Having that game on television is a good opportunity to showcase the club.

“Playing fantastic football clubs like Coventry will be a big challenge but one we are looking forward to.”

Hasselbaink’s first-ever match in charge of the Brewers was played in front of the Sky Sports cameras with Albion running out 3-1 winners at Wycombe Wanderers in a top of the table clash last November.
