Rovers home game against Colchester United on 24 January 2009 was Rovers 25th League One match of the season. Going into the game Rovers were in seventeenth place in the League, but a series of postponements meant that they had games in hand on the teams around them.

Coach Paul Trollope named an unchanged starting eleven from the previous game, a 2-1 victory over Leyton Orient a week earlier, and made one change on the bench after midfielder Richard Langley suffered a knee injury in a midweek reserve game – Ben Hunt taking his spot. The Colchester lineup featured future Rovers player Pat Baldwin.

Goalscoring opportunities during the match were few and far between, with neither team making many chances for their forward players and the game ended without a goal being scored. One bizarre incident late in the first half saw Colchester substitute Anthony Wordsworth booked while warming up. He was stretching near the corner flag when Rovers were awarded a corner kick, which was taken by Stuart Campbell. While Campbell was running up to the ball to take the kick, Wordsworth stuck a leg out towards him as if to try and trip him. This was noticed by the linesman, who brought it to the referee's attention.
