Sky Sports has announced its latest selection of live Sky Bet EFL fixtures, with promotion hopefuls and local rivals going head to head over Christmas and the New Year.
Nine further Sky Bet Championship fixtures have been added to the schedule for December and the start of January as part of a bumper festive offering following Sky Sports latest Premier League picks.
Leeds United have today announced that three crucial Championship fixtures in December and Janaury have been moved for Sky TV.
United will also be shown a further three times in their next five games again after being chosen for full coverage with trips to West Bromwich Albion (November 10) and Sheffield United (December 1) selected along with the visit of Reading (November 27) to Elland Road.
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.
West Brom and Aston Villa games moved for live TV coverage
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.

Leaving out Tomori cannot have been down to his performance against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge a few days earlier, because he got man of the match. So, is Frank looking for that “best” pairing, the right balance?
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.
