By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Newcastle United's home Barclays Premier League fixture against Aston Villa in February has been chosen for live broadcast.

Sky Sports has opted to show the Magpies' match against Paul Lambert's side, which means a change in the kick-off time.

Currently, the game remains on Saturday, 22nd February, but will now start at 5.30pm rather than its original 3pm.

However, should Manchester United be scheduled to play in the Champions League on Tuesday, 25th February, Newcastle's clash against Villa will move to Sunday, 23rd February, at 1.30pm and remain live on Sky


Overview of new TV selection

- Saturday, 22nd February - Newcastle United v Aston Villa (5.30pm kick-off), Sky Sports (originally 3pm kick-off)
