BT SPORT ANNOUNCE TWO MORE LIVE GAMES
Thursday Oct 30, 2014
The Football Conference have announced that BTSport have added two more fixtures to their list of live screenings from the Vanarama Conference.
Top of the table Barnet will welcome Torquay United to The Hive on Tuesday, November 11th with a kick off at 8pm.
Both clubs are striving to claim back a place in the Football League and the Gulls will be seeking to reduce the points difference which the Bees have racked up since the opening day of the season.
The match will be shown on BTSport 1.
Additionally, BT Sport will be screening live a further fixture from their competition when the match between Bristol Rovers and Gateshead is brought forward from Saturday, December 20th by 24 hours to Friday, December 19th.
Traditionally fixtures played on the last Saturday before Christmas always struggle to attract large attendances so by moving it to the Friday evening, it is hoped this will enable more home supporters to attend and importantly allow more Heed fans to watch from afar as their seasoned manager Gary Mills takes on his younger counter-part Darrell Clarke in charge of the Gas.
The game kicks off at 7.45pm from the Memorial Stadium and confirmation of which BT Sport channel it will be screened on will be advised nearer the date.
Gateshead failed at the final hurdle last season by losing out in the Promotion Final at Wembley to Cambridge United, whereas Bristol Rovers meanwhile are trying to win back their status which they lost on the final day of last season, being relegated from the Football League for the first time in 94 years.
