SWINDON Town's League One fixture away at AFC Wimbledon next weekend will have the 3pm kick-off time moved to avoid a clash with the funeral of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The EFL say the decision was taken as a mark of respect for Prince Phillip, who died on Friday aged 99.

In a statement from the governing body, the EFL said it would work with clubs to determine at what time games would now be played, giving consideration to the timing of the service.

Clubs will announce the rearranged kick-off time of their April 17 fixtures in due course.

Before Swindon travel to Plough Lane on Saturday though, the club face Rochdale at the Crown Oil Arena on Tuesday night in a significant fixture for their survival aspirations.
