Originally due to take place on Saturday 12th March, Reading will now travel south on Friday 11th March for a 19:45 kick-off. It is the first game selected for the television since the boxing day defeat at Wolves, which ended a run of three games in quick succession on Sky.
The switch is similar to September's game with Ipswich being changed to a Friday night, with any complaints drowned out by a 5-1 victory for Reading. However, this move will come after Brian McDermott's team travel to Huddersfield Town on Tuesday 8th March, while the Seagulls prepare with a home clash with Sheffield Wednesday on the same evening.
After launching themselves to the top of the table with an early unbeaten run, including a 1-1 draw at the Madejski Stadium, Brighton are winless since December 5th with four losses in their last five.
The only other fixture to be announced in this round of TV matches was Burnley's match with Blackburn Rovers on March 5th.
