The Sky Bet Championship fixture between Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough has been rescheduled at the request of The Football League.The game will now take place on Tuesday 1st March (kick-off 7.45pm) – unless results in the FA Cup Third Round enable the match to be brought forward to Saturday 30th January.
The match was originally scheduled to be played on Boxing Day but was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch at Ewood Park.
Initially, the two clubs agreed that the game would be rearranged for Tuesday 16th February, with the new date being publicised by The Football League and both clubs.
However, following further discussions between the League and the two clubs a new date has been agreed that will assist the League with its wider fixture scheduling requirements.
The Football League wishes to apologise to supporters of Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough for any inconvenience this further change might cause and we would like to thank the two clubs for their understanding in the circumstances.
