Executive Director Charlie Methven has gone on record this season to express his frustration at the illegal broadcasting of games in city centre pubs.

Methven said that those involved were 'taking the mickey out the club'.

Tickets for the screening of the game will cost £10, with a bottle of beer and pie and peas including.

Pre-match and half-time entertainment will be provided by the Wise Men Say podcast team, featuring contributions from former Black Cat players.

The game will be shown in Quinn's Sports bar.
