Burnley fixtures moved

Posted: Fri 28 Jun 2013

Blues’ Championship home and away games against Burnley have both been put back 24 hours.

Lee Clark’s side will now play Burnley on Wednesday 18 September, 2013 at Turf Moor (7.45pm kick-off).

Blues’ home fixture against the Clarets has been rescheduled for Wednesday 12 March, 2014 (7.45pm kick-off).

These changes have been made following requests from police, as Burnley are playing Blackburn on the preceding Sundays prior to each home and away midweek fixture against Blues.

Meanwhile the club can also inform supporters that there is a possibility that Blues’ home fixture against Leicester City which is pencilled in for Tuesday 28 January, 2014, may change at the request of West Midlands Police who will not allow Blues and Aston Villa to play at home on the same evening.

Villa currently have a home fixture scheduled against West Brom on that night, but this could move if it is selected as a live broadcast. Television selections for January will be confirmed in October. The two clubs have therefore made the decision to delay any rearrangements until selections are made.
