ATHLETIC will play two successive fixtures on Friday nights after it was announced they have been moved for television coverage.

BBC Scotland, who are contracted to show matches in the SPFL Championship, have revealed their latest picks for live broadcast - and they have picked two Pars games from the latest three chosen.

In November, their trip to Greenock Morton, originially pencilled in for Saturday November 4, has been brought forward to Friday November 3, whilst the home game with Dundee United on Saturday November 11, will now be played on Friday November 10.

Both games will kick off at 7.45pm, with the SPFL also announcing that Airdrieonians' clash with Queen's Park next month will also be televised, on Friday October 20.

The trip to Cappielow will be the first match this season that James McPake's team have featured in a live TV match.
