However, we understand supporters' desire to keep up to date with all the action during this blackout - whether you're a fan of Wolves, West Brom, Aston Villa or Walsall.

Here, we'll detail our plans to ensure you can keep up with the action for each of this weekend's games.

Walsall v Morecambe - 3pm, Saturday May 1

Walsall take on Morecambe at 3pm on Saturday at the Banks's Stadium. There will be no tweets from the ground from Walsall reporter Liam Keen, or any other members of the Express & Star team.

From 1.30pm, we will be running a manned feed providing updates available on the Express & Star website. This will include everything from team news, to match action - and everything in between.

Following the full-time whistle, we will also publish our usual match report and manager reaction.

None of these articles will be shared on social media in-line with the boycott.

Video analysis of the game will be available on Tuesday May 4, featuring Liam Keen and Nathan Judah.

Aston Villa make the trip to Everton on Saturday evening, with kick-off scheduled for 8pm. Our chief sports writer and Aston Villa reporter Matt Maher, or any other member of the Express & Star team, will not be tweeting any updates from the game.

From 6.45pm, we will be running a feed providing updates on all the action on Merseyside, including team news, match action and more - this will be available on the Express & Star website.

As usual, a full match report and match reaction will be available on the Express & Star website following the fixture.

No articles will be shared on social media.

The Baggies welcome Wolves to The Hawthorns for the second Black Country Derby of the season on Monday evening.

There will be no tweets from Wolves reporter Joe Edwards, Albion reporter Joe Masi or any other member of the Express & Star team.

From 4.30pm, a manned feed providing live updates from the game will be available on the Express & Star website. This will include team news, match action and analysis throughout.

As the case with our other fixtures, a full match report and reaction from each manager will be published to view on the Express & Star website after full time.

Video analysis of Wolves from Joe Edwards and Nathan Judah, West Brom from Joe Masi and Luke Hatfield will be made available to fans to watch on Tuesday May 4.

Video fan reaction from both clubs will also be made available on May 4.

All of the above coverage, not including live feeds, will also be available to view on the Express & Star app. The boycott will have no effect on our print coverage of the weekend's action.

We would like to thank all of our readers for their understanding in our inclusion in this united effort to raise awareness of online abuse, and bring it to a stop.
