SAINTS have had two of their fixtures rescheduled for TV.

The first game to be changed is against Manchester United on Saturday, 31 August at 12.30pm as opposed to the original 3pm kick-off time.

Last season's encounter between the two sides at St Mary's ended in a 2-2 draw, which also happened to be Mark Hughes's final game before being sacked.

Saints threw away a two-goal lead to let United back into the game and nick a point.

Their tie at home to Bournemouth on Saturday, 21 September has also been changed, with it now taking place a day earlier.

Due to it being broadcast by Sky Sports on a Friday night, the game will kick-off at 8pm.

The Cherries' last visit to St Mary's in April turned out to be a six-goal thriller and broadcasters will be hoping for similar levels of entertainment.
