Everton fixture moved back

Last updated : 09 October 2002 By The Gas Man
Because of United's game in the UEFA Cup 2nd round taking place on Thursday 31st October, the home game with Everton will now be played at Elland Road on Sunday, 3rd November 2002, kick-off 3.00 p.m.

Meanwhile, Leeds' opponents in the 2nd round of the UEFA Cup, Hapoel Tel- Aviv, have not yet confirmed where and when their "home" leg will take place.

Due to the current political unrest in Israel, UEFA's instructions are that all their club sides in European competition play their home ties at a neutral venue.

If the away game with the Israeli side takes place on Thursday, 14th November as is expected, then Uniteds' Premiership game against Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road scheduled for Saturday, 16th November, would be moved to Sunday, 17th November.
