Plymouth Argyle crunch game against MK Dons selected for live TV coverage

Play-off chasing Plymouth Argyle have had their vital game against MK Dons at Home Park on Saturday lunchtime selected for live TV coverage on Sky Sports.

The kick-off will remain at 12.30pm as Sky broadcast a second successive Pilgrims’ match at the Theatre of Greens. It follows their broadcast of the 0-0 draw with Sunderland on Easter Monday.

The visit of third-placed MK Dons, who still have a chance of securing automatic promotion, will be Argyle’s sixth home sell -out of the season, meaning there will be an attendance in excess of 15,000.

MK Dons must better Rotherham United’s result away to Gillingham to have any chance of a top two finish, and there is also an outside chance they could be crowned as champions if current leaders Wigan Athletic were to slip up at Shrewsbury Town too.

There are a number of scenarios of how Argyle can book a play-off place, but one guaranteed way is for them to beat MK Dons and for Wycombe to not win by two more goals than the Pilgrims do when playing away to Burton Albion.

As a result of the selection for live broadcast by Sky, video streaming on Argyle TV will be unavailable, although audio commentary will be available as standard, as well as a live pre-match show with Erin Black on the club’s official YouTube channel.

Overseas supporters are being advised to check their local listings to see where the game is available closer to the time.

Argyle against MK Dons is one of two games being screened live by Sky at the same time on separate channels.

The other one is Rotherham’s clash against Gillingham, where the Millers could be crowned as champions, finish as runners-up or drop into the play-off places.

Gillingham also have a lot of play for as they are 21st and in the relegation zone, but are only below Fleetwood Town – who are currently in a position of safety – on goal difference, so they will be fighting to stay up.

All of the final round of League One games on Saturday will klick-off at 12.30pm, not just the two selected TV matches.
