When the fixtures were released almost a week ago, we commented that they would be subject to change.

And that has proven to be exactly the case!

Our very first game of the 2016 / 2017 Championship season, against Newcastle United at Craven Cottage, has been moved.

Instead of opening our season with a Saturday fixture the game has been moved forward to Friday 5th August with a 19:45 kick-off.

The game will be shown live on Sky Sports although that is of little commiseration to Newcastle United fans who now face spending Friday night in London or travelling back to the north-east and arriving home in the early hours of Saturday morning.

But, looking on the bright side a win will leave Fulham top of the Championship!
