Given that our EFL Cup First Round Tie against Cardiff City is being televised live on Thursday 11th August, we have had to reschedule our opening two league fixtures at The Memorial Stadium.
The game against Oxford United will now be played on Sunday 14th August, kick off 3.00pm and the game against Bolton Wanderers will now be played on Wednesday 17th August, kick off 7.45pm.
In addition to these two changes, our away match against Gillingham, originally scheduled for Saturday 15th April 2017, will now be played on Friday 14th April 2017, kick off 3.00pm.
Both ourselves and Bristol City are scheduled to be at home on Saturday 18th March 2017 and we are awaiting a decision as to whether or not we can both play those games or whether one of us has to reschedule. We are hoping that a decision will be made early next month.
In addition, the kick off time for our match against Swindon Town on 27th August is likely to be brought forward. We are, as yet, unable to confirm the actual time until it has been considered the Safety Advisory Group at their meeting on 11th July.
