This season, with West Bromwich Albion flying high at the top end of the Championship, many of the Baggies games have been chosen for coverage on Sky Sports, and the latest of their games to be picked is their clash with Nottingham Forest at The Hawthorns in February.

The West Midlands side have had an awful lot of their games rescheduled as a result of being chosen for TV coverage, and this one is just yet another clash. Whilst this may be good for the fans who can’t get to games, for the match-going supporters it’s far from ideal.
Fortunately, this one hasn’t been moved to a Monday night. Instead, this one has only been pulled forward by a few hours, going from a standard 15:00 kick-off to a 12:30 start, although it still hasn’t stopped many of the fans from having a pop.

West Brom fans aren’t best pleased by the fixture change, but it seems there isn’t an awful lot they can do.
