Even if we do play on the original date, I doubt it will be 3pm KO. There’s no Sky game announced for the 5.30 slot so I reckon it will get moved to that slot, if they get knocked out of the cup.

No, Sky have named the live games up to the 4th March, they can't add anymore now. So, if Albion get knocked out of the cup, the match goes ahead at 3pm on the Saturday, unless the police say otherwise.


The police aren't bothered about us playing them at three but wouldn't want it on a Friday night.

Even though we played them on a Friday night just two months ago? Or are you saying Dave that's the exact reason WMP don't want it to take place (can't remember reading if it kicked off or not).

I have a feeling this will be midweek as Brighton tend to be one of those premier league sides who put reserve teams out in the cup for some reason so think they'll get replay at least against scratch Brighton team.

They're fine with us playing there because the supporter flow is mainly us one way and them the other but on a Friday night we'd be coming from all over which could cause a problem. Apparently.

There was a dust up on the train between Stourbridge and the Hawthorns when we last played them. Dave is right though, generally speaking the Police don't give a shit what day or time we play them.

Had a look at the fixtures for both teams and I reckon the Albion game will be Tuesday 26th Feb if they win on Wednesday.

No games moved in the next tranche just released. As you'd expect, Norwich, Leeds, Sheff Utd and everyone else in the Top 6 have games on TV.

As we have said before, a crap, mid-table second tier side and we still get over 35,000 for crap, mid table games.  They are lucky to have us. Sky inevitably lose interest in us despite higher viewing figures.  I hope our owners don't lose interest and see the value in getting us to the Premier Division next season.

Is Bolton on Good Friday or the Saturday? Might pop up to that one.

I'm pretty sure it will be as it's a bank holiday game and likes of Preston and QPR over xmas were available on the button.

Just couldn't remember if it was a straight Saturday fixture list or all games were played on the Friday as I remember a few years back we play Reading at VP on the Saturday instead of Good Friday.
