Leeds United have today announced that three crucial Championship fixtures in December and Janaury have been moved for Sky TV.
The Whites are now very accustomed to having games moved, with the TV company regularly choosing to show the Yorkshire club due to the high viewing figures they attract.
That, combined with the attractive style of football they play under Marcelo Bielsa, means they have been chosen more than any other Championship side for coverage this season.
???? | Three of our fixtures (Aston Villa, Forest, Derby) in December and January have been selected for live broadcast on Sky Sports

And, the club confirmed on their website that games against Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest and Derby have all been moved.
Leeds will now play at Villa Park on December 23 at 1:30pm, whilst they face Forest at the City Ground at 3pm on New Year’s Day.
The final altered game is on January 11, a Friday night, when Bielsa’s men welcome the Rams to Elland Road.
As mentioned, Leeds fans expect this and here’s how they reacted to the update from the club…
Leeds? On Sky Sports? Never heard anything as ridiculous in my life. You must be mistaken

They spent a lot of money on that crowd muffling machine and need to get their money’s worth #lufc
