Preston North End's Championship clash with Wigan Athletic in February has been selected for live coverage by Sky Sports.

The trip to the DW Stadium remains on Saturday, February 8 but will have a 12.30pm kick-off.

In recent weeks a number of North End games have been broadcast live.

During December, the games against West Bromwich Albion, Fulham, Cardiff and Leeds were beamed to the nation.

In November, PNE's 1-0 win at Charlton was shown by Sky, with the broadcaster also televising August's 3-1 win over Stoke.

Championship clubs receive £75,000 per televised game, whether they are home or away.

In the reverse fixture against Wigan at Deepdale in August, North End won 3-0 thanks to goals from Sean Maguire, Louis Moult and Paul Gallagher.
