Stoke City are to feature live on Sky after all.
The club was overlooked in the first batch of Championship fixtures to feature live.
But this afternoon it was announced that Stoke’s trip to leaders Leeds on Thursday July 9 will be broadcast live.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 5pm and could conceivably see Leeds secure promotion or even the Championship title.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side currently sits at the top of the table, one point in front of West Bromwich Albion and seven points clear of third-placed Fulham with nine games remaining.
The fixture could also be huge for Stoke City too, of course, as they battle to avoid the drop at the other end of the table.
Stoke, currently five places and three points above the relegation zone, will travel to Leeds after playing Reading (a), Middlesbrough (h), Wigan (a) and Barnsley (h).
The Leeds trip is then followed by Birmingham City (h), Bristol City (a), Brentford (h) and Nottingham Forest (a).
Stoke will be travelling to Elland Road for a second time this season after winning a League Cup penalty shoot out there earlier in the campaign.
