Ipswich Town’s game at Middlesbrough on Saturday, March 14 will be shown live on Sky Sports (kick-off 12.15pm).

The game, moved from a 3pm kick-off, will be the eighth time Town will have appeared on the national television cameras this season.

Mick McCarthy’s side have already come under inspection from the television cameras on six occasions this season, with wins against Fulham (2-1), Wigan (2-1), and Charlton (1-0), as well as defeats against Norwich (1-0), Derby (1-0), and Southampton (1-0).

Town will also be on Sky when they visit Norwich City’s Carrow Road on Sunday, March 1 (14.05pm kick-off), looking for revenge following the narrow derby day defeat in August.

Third-placed Ipswich beat fourth-placed Boro 2-0 at Portman Road in December thanks to goals from Jay Tabb and Daryl Murphy.
