Carlisle United have brought one of their games in the new season forward - to avoid a clash with rugby.

The Blues face Northampton Town at the Sixfields Stadium on Saturday, October 30.

The League Two game had been scheduled to start at the traditional time of 3pm.

But it has now been moved because Northampton Saints rugby union side have a televised game in the town at the same time, against Leicester Tigers.

Carlisle's game against the Cobblers will now start an hour earlier at 2pm.

A Northampton Town spokesman said: “The Cobblers and the Saints will continue to work together to limit direct kick-off clashes whenever possible this season, with both clubs moving kick-off times on occasions for the benefit of local residents and supporters attending matches at either Sixfields or Franklin's Gardens.”
