Brighton and Hove Albion look likely to be shown on television in April more times than Top Gear is on Dave with the announcement that Sky have picked another of our games for live coverage.
The Good Friday trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers will now kick off at 5pm on Friday 14th April rather than at 3pm. That makes it back-to-back Friday’s live on the box with the trip to QPR coming the week beforehand.
This is the second time the fixture has been moved. It was originally due to take place on Saturday 15th but both clubs agreed at the start of the season to push it back a day, allowing for an extra days rest before further games on Easter Monday. Jesus of Nazareth was quoted at the time as saying, “I thought I’d had a terrible Good Friday that year they crucified me, but at least I wasn’t forced to go to Wolverhampton.”
The good news is that the pre-Christmas trip to Birmingham proved that it is possible to get back for a tea time kick off in that area of the country via train which means that, for once, Sky haven’t totally cocked up potential travel plans. The bad news is that it offers an extra two hours of pre game drinking in Birmingham which last time resulted in one member of the WeAreBrighton.com team splitting his trousers in half when Glenn Murray scored that late winner.
It will be the first time we have been shown live from Molineux since 2002, a 1-1 draw when Michel Kuipers made THAT double save
