Wolves Sheffield United

Premier League, EFL and Scottish football schedules have been adjusted "as a mark of respect" to avoid clashing with Saturday's funeral of Prince Philip.

The Duke of Edinburgh died at the age of 99 on Friday and his funeral will be held at St George's Chapel, Windsor, at 3pm on Saturday.

A national minute's silence will be held at that time and the FA is recommending that no games take place between 2.45pm and 4.15pm.

A minute's silence will take place before matches and black armbands worn.

Wolves-Sheff Utd moved

Wolves' Premier League match against Sheffield United on Saturday, live on Sky Sports, has been moved from a 3pm kick-off to 8.15pm.

Newcastle's earlier game against West Ham will kick-off at 12.30pm as planned.

The FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Manchester City at Wembley will remain at 17:30.
