Stevenage's final game of the season has been pushed back by a little less than 48 hours due to the coronation of King Charles III.

Boro were originally meant to be travelling to Barrow on Saturday, May 6, but following the announcement of that day being the one chosen for the grand regal occasion, the EFL have now made changes to the calendar across their three divisions.

As a result Steve Evans' men will go to Holker Street on the bank holiday Monday, May 8, for a 12.30pm kick-off.

TV companies played a huge part in the decision with the EFL confirming the outcome "follows consultation with stakeholders".

It makes life difficult for Boro's supporters with the 266-mile journey taking in excess of five hours according to Google maps.

And it is not just the Hertfordshire side who have been stung.

Carlisle United go to south London and Sutton United at the same time while Gillingham travel north from Kent to Salford City.

The early kick-offs in League Two form part one of a a bumper day of football with the final Championship fixtures all starting at 3pm.

League One will have their final encounters in the regular season one day earlier, on Sunday, May 7, with games kicking-off at 12.00pm.
