Des Lynam yesterday won his fight with the BBC to allow Match of the Day to kick off earlier on a Saturday night.

The flagship show's presenter had been unhappy with the 10.50pm Saturday start time, which he said was "in the land of the nodding-off". The BBC has announced that the show will gradually move to an earlier time slot, with a 10.30pm start by the end of the season.
