Two of Sheffield Wednesday’s remaining fixtures have been moved to allow one of them to be shown live on Sky Sports. Sheffield Wednesday were scheduled to play MK Dons at the Stadium MK on Friday, April 15. That was due to be a 3pm kick-off as it is Good Friday.
However, the match is now going to be shown on Sky Sports, which means it will move from the Friday to the Saturday, April 16. The kick-off will now be at 7.45pm.

MK Dons are currently third in League One, three points off an automatic promotion spot. They have won six of their last seven matches, including beating first-placed Rotherham and drawing 1-1 with second-placed Wigan Athletic, though Sheffield Wednesday beat them 2-1 at Hillsborough in November.
As a result of the match against MK Dons being bumped, the match against Crewe Alexandra at Hillsborough on Monday, April 18, will also be bumped. That match will now shift from Easter Monday to the following day, which is Tuesday, April 19, with kick-off at 7:45pm.
Wednesday will be hoping to pick up three points at home to Crewe Alexandra, who are rock-bottom of the table at the moment. They have lost their last five matches and are now eight points from safety.
Sheffield Wednesday still have eight matches to play this season and are currently one point off the final play-off spot. That spot is occupied by Sunderland, who have played one more match than the Owls. The Owls’ next match is on Saturday at home to Cheltenham. Kick-off is at 3pm.
