📺 Barnsley and Watford trips rescheduled for Sky Sports coverage

April away days to take on the Tykes and the Hornets picked to be televised live

11 March 2021

Our April trips to Oakwell and Vicarage Road to face Barnsley and Watford have been rescheduled after being selected for live coverage on Sky Sports.

Our Good Friday visit to South Yorkshire to take on Barnsley has been pushed back two and a half hours, and will now kick-off at 5.30pm on Friday 2nd April, having previously been scheduled for 3pm.

Meanwhile our trip to Hertfordshire to face the Hornets has been brought forward by a day and will now take place on the evening of Friday 9th April, kick-off 7.45pm.

Our meeting with Xisco Muñoz's side was originally scheduled for 3pm on Saturday 10th April.

The Royals will be hoping to complete a league double over both sides in front of the cameras next month, having won the reverse fixtures earlier in the season.

In mid-September, we ran out 2-0 winners when the Tykes visited the Madejski, as both Yakou Méïté and Michael Olise found the net within the space of nine minutes, to ensure we continued our unbeaten start to the campaign.

While two weeks later, we went up against Watford and kept another clean sheet, as George Pușcaș scored the game's only goal to secure the Royals a 1-0 victory on home soil which was packed full of grit and determination.

Following our two latest rearrangements, Royals fans can familiarise themselves with the changes, by taking a look at our full fixture list, which will be updated shortly and is available to view here.
