Blackburn Rovers' Championship clash against Ipswich Town has been moved to 5:30pm on Good Friday.

Rovers have been selected for Sky Sports coverage and will now host the Tractor Boys live on the box two and a half hours later than initially scheduled.

That kicks off the Easter weekend for John Eustace's side with a trip to Sunderland on Easter Monday.

Rovers have not had a game moved for a Sky TV match since the away trip to Norwich City in November which became a Sunday 12pm kick-off.

The two teams last met in September, with Rovers losing 4-3 in a dramatic match at Portman Road. Ipswich are still in the thick of the automatic promotion race and will be trying to continue their impressive form to reach the Premier League.

Rovers travel to Swansea City on Saturday before a doubleheader at Ewood Park against Millwall and Plymouth Argyle. Those will be crucial fixtures in defining their season and securing their Championship status.

Eustace will get a free week on the training ground for the first time since arriving after that, building up to a trip to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough. 

The head coach then gets the international break to work with his players before facing Ipswich on Friday, March 29.
