THREE more Leeds United games have been picked to feature live on Sky in October and November.

Leeds’ Championship hosting of Sheffield United which was initially set to take place on Saturday, October 28 will now be played the night before with a 7.45pm kick-off.

The following Saturday’s Championship trip to Brentford has also been picked for broadcast by Sky and will now be a 5.30pm kick-off at Griffin Park.

And United’s eagerly-awaited Elland Road showdown with Middlesbrough boss and former Leeds head coach Garry Monk has, not surprisingly, also been picked for prime-time viewing on the third weekend in November.

The game was initially set to take place on Saturday, November 18 but will now take place the following day with a 1.15pm kick-off.

Due to the clash with Boro being moved back a day, United’s trip to Wolves the following week will now also take place a day later, with a 7.45pm kick-off at Molineux on Wednesday, November 22.

None of United’s next six games are on Sky with Leeds next on the box when visiting Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, October 1.
