TWO of Wrexham's away matches early in the League One campaign have been selected for live television coverage.

Games against Bolton Wanderers and Birmingham City will both be broadcast live on Sky Sports, with new dates for each fixture.

The clash with Bolton at The Toughsheet Community Stadium - the Reds' first away game of the season in the third tier - will now take place on Sunday August 18 and kick off at 3pm, with live coverage on Sky Sports Football.

The game against Birmingham City at St Andrews has been switched to Monday September 16 with an 8pm kick off, and is also live on Sky Sports Football.

These televised matches are in addition to Wrexham's opening day fixture against Wycombe Wanderers at The Racecourse on Saturday August 10  being confirmed as a 5.30pm kick-off.

That is because all EFL matches on the opening weekend will be broadcast.

It remains to be seen if more Wrexham games are selected for live television coverage, although supporters will be given plenty of notice.

All TV selections will be confirmed for the period up to the FA Cup third round in early January prior to the start of the season, to help with planning.

As part of the new five-year Sky Sports and EFL broadcast deal, more matches than ever are being shown live and Phil Parkinson said his side would adapt if Wrexham games were selected and there was a change of date or kick-off time

Wrexham finished runners-up in League Two last season, securing back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club's history, and are preparing for a first season in League One for 19 years.

“We know there could be varying kick-off times and days with the new television deal,” said Parkinson.

“It’s something we will have to get used to.

“It is just about adapting to that as the season goes on and when the television fixtures get announced.

“It is a good sign if you get selected for a television game because it shows you are doing well as the season progresses.

“We will just take whatever comes our way and adapt to that as we go along.”
