Newcastle United's visit to Huddersfield Town has been chosen for live broadcast.

The Championship fixture between the two clubs at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday, March 4 has been put back to a 5.30pm kick-off after being selected for screening by Sky Sports.

Second-placed Newcastle were beaten 2-1 by David Wagner's side at St James's Park early in the season.

Newcastle's game away to third-placed Reading on March 7 has not been chosen, though a statement by the EFL said "further matches may be selected for live coverage throughout March".
