Match will be screened live on television
Wednesday 10 April 2013
Sunderland's potentially crucial Premier League clash with Stoke next month has been moved back two days to Monday evening and will be screened live by Sky.
The clubs currently sitting respectively in 17th and 15th places in the table will now meet at the Stadium of Light on Monday, May 6 (kick-off 8pm).
Stoke were originally scheduled to play on Wearside on the previous Saturday afternoon.
The Black Cats head into this Sunday's derby trip to Newcastle only clear of the relegation zone on goal difference and without a win in nine games.
The Potters, who entertain champions-elect Manchester United the same day, are just three points better off and have tasted victory once in their last 13 league outings.
