The game was originally due to kick off at 3 pm BST but will now start at 5:30 pm and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The Echo saying, in a nod to travelling fans, there will now be at least 6 weeks advance notice of fixture changes.

But in the New Year, that slips a little, to 5 weeks.

Does this mean that none of our other early season matches have been moved? Just this one?

That would appear to be the case, Simon.

The first 3 games are still listed as Saturday 3pm kick-offs. I'm surprised the second game, away to Spurs, seemingly isn't being broadcast.

I am also surprised that only one of our first six Premier League games has been moved for TV, but I expect our Man Utd away game to be moved back one day (Saturday 30 November to Sunday 1 December), simply because I believe they are in the Europa League the previous Thursday (28 November).

If so, this could see the Wolves home game pushed back 24 hours. It's currently scheduled for Tuesday 3 December. I'll be surprised if it's not moved to Wednesday 4 December.

Obviously, I could be wrong on all this. But I do think the club should point out these possibilities on the official website to alert prospective match-goers who book days off, hotels, flights etc.
