Preston game selected for television
Written by Dan King
Next month's home game against Preston North End has been selected for live television broadcast.
With Newcastle fighting for automatic promotion and Preston eyeing a play-off place, Sky Sports will show the game from St. James' Park.
As a result, the fixture will be played on Monday, 24th April (kick-off 7.45pm) rather than its previous date of Saturday, 22nd April at 3pm.
United were 2-1 winners at Deepdale in October, with Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring both goals, while the Magpies won 6-0 in the EFL Cup on Tyneside in the same month.
