LEEDS United's September Championship clash at Barnsley has been moved to a Sunday lunch-time kick-off on police advice.

The clash at Oakwell was originally set to take place at 3pm on Saturday, September 14 but the game will now kick-off at 12.30pm the following day on Sunday, September 15 on the advice of South Yorkshire Police.

Leeds have now already seen their six of their first 11 games moved away from regular kick-off times or on TV with United's Championship opener at Bristol City on Sunday, August 4 taking place at 4.30pm for broadcast live on Sky.

United's first home game against Nottingham Forest the following Saturday has also been moved to a 12.30pm kick-off for live Sky coverage whilst the first round EFL Cup tie at Salford City the following Tuesday is also live on Sky.

Six days after the Barnsley clash at Oakwell, United's home clash against Derby County on Saturday, September 12 has also been moved to a 12.30pm kick-off or live coverage by Sky.

The Elland Road contest against West Brom on Tuesday, October 1 is another game set to be screened live on Sky.

Leeds will find out if any of their other October matches or those over the first two weekend of November will be moved for TV coverage by August 30.

The Yorkshire derby at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, October 26 is an obvious contender.
