Cheltenham clash to kick-off off later

Pompey’s final game of the season against Cheltenham at Fratton Park will kick-off at 5.30pm.

All of that day’s Sky Bet League Two matches will be played simultaneously to ensure all promotion and relegation issues are resolved fairly and concurrently in what is set to be a nail-biting conclusion to the campaign.

The fixtures have been switched from their initial 3pm slot so that at least one decisive contest can be broadcast live on Sky Sports. 

John Nixon, League Two’s representative on the EFL Board, said: “The final day of the regular season is always a tense and dramatic day for all supporters, whether you are sitting in the stands or watching on TV.

“The change means more and more football fans up and down the country will now be able to see the season finale and witness first-hand the contribution League Two clubs have made to another fantastic campaign in the EFL.

“It is also important that we are able to notify supporters of this change well in advance to allow plenty of time for any alterations to travel plans that may be required.”
