Newcastle United v Brentford: how to keep up to date with Premier League game and how to watch highlights

Highlights will be shown on BBC One show Match of the Day

Brentford head north to face Newcastle in gameweek nine of the Premier League, in a game that both clubs feel they can win.

Newcastle shrugged off their recent patchy form with an emphatic 4-1 away win at Fulham, whilst Brentford come into the game off the back of a drab 0-0 draw away at newly promoted Bournemouth.

Both sides have just one defeat in five, to Liverpool and Arsenal respectively with Newcastle currently sitting seventh and Brentford comfortably 10th in the league.

The Bees have shrugged off any concerns over the dreaded ‘second season syndrome’ with their standout game being a 4-0 demolition job over Manchester United.

When is the game?

The game is set to kick off at 3pm on Saturday, October 8 2022. This fixture last year was an end-to-end game that saw both sides leave with a point after a 3-3 draw.

Why is the game not on TV?

Newcastle vs Brentford has been selected for a 3pm kick-off time on Saturday October 8 and so it won’t be shown live on UK television.

This is to comply with the ‘blackout’ regulation on televised coverage between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday.

Under the rules, broadcasting rights are restricted for clubs in the UK, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.

Not all is lost, though, as highlights will be available for Sky Sports subscribers on the Sky Sports app around 15-30 minutes after the final whistle.

How do I keep up with the game?

Despite the game not being on television, you can keep up with all the action by watching Gillette Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports.

Jeff Stelling and his expert panel will keep up to date with all games over England and Scotland both in the studio and in the stadiums.

How do I watch the highlights?

Highlights can be viewed on BBC One show Match of the Day which follows the weather report on Saturday night.

Gary Lineker, Ian Wright and Alan Shearer provide great analysis with extended highlights and commentary shown.
