Rovers’ game at Cardiff City has been brought forward to a 12:30pm kick-off.

That will allow for the game to be streamed after it was confirmed the game will be played behind closed doors.

The Welsh Government announced last month that sporting events would have to be played behind closed doors as they reverted to level two coronavirus measures in light of rising cases of the Omicron variant.

Cardiff City’s FA Cup tie win over Preston North End on Sunday was played behind closed doors, with that set to continue for this Saturday’s visit of Rovers.

It will be the third successive visit to the Cardiff City Stadium that Rovers fans will be unable to attend, with games in July 2020 and April 2021 all played without supporters.

The club have announced streaming plans for the game, with the kick-off brought forward to 12:30pm to avoid the 3pm blackout on matches being streamed in the UK.

A Rovers statement read: Following the latest instructions issued by the Welsh government, the game at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday will be played behind closed doors, with no supporters permitted to attend.

"As a result, in order to offer a live streaming service in accordance with broadcast guidelines, the two clubs have agreed that the fixture will be brought forward to a 12.30pm kick-off, with supporters able to watch the game on RoversTV at a cost of £10.

"Rovers fans will be able to purchase a match pass for the game from Wednesday onwards."
