THIS season’s Tyne-Wear derby has been moved back a day after being chosen for live broadcast.

Newcastle will now entertain Sunderland on Sunday, December 21, 1:30pm kick-off, with the game pencilled in to be shown live on Sky Sports.

The game was due to be played the day before.

The Black Cats will be looking to make it three wins on the trot on Tyneside having won the last two fixtures at St James’ Park 3-0.
