CHERRIES' Championship clash with Barnsley has been brought forward.

The contest will still take place next Friday, December 4 but will now kick-off at 5.30pm, instead of the originally scheduled 7.45pm.

The game will still be shown live of Sky Sports.

It will be the first time the two sides have met since March 2014, where Cherries won 1-0 at Oakwell thanks to a stoppage-time Steve Cook goal.
