Sky Sports select two Leeds United fixtures for TV coverage.

The Whites visit to Pride Park on Saturday August 11 will now be played at the altered kick-off time of 17:30 as Marcelo Bielsa's men take on the Rams in their first away game of the campaign.

United's trip to Graham Potter's Swansea, which is the longest of the season, was originally set for Wednesday August 22 but will now take place a day earlier (Aug 21) at 19:45.

The move now means that three of Leeds' first four Championship fixtures will be shown live in front of the Sky Sports cameras following the opening day broadcast of Stoke City at Elland Road on Sunday August 5 (16:30).
