Rovers were still without a home win in the 2012–13 season after this League Two defeat to Cheltenham Town, a result which ended a brief three-game unbeaten run.

Former Rovers man Chris Zebroski scored the only goal of the match for Cheltenham towards the end of the first half. He was one of three ex-Gas players in the Robins' squad, along with Steve Elliott and Darryl Duffy. Zebroski received such a negative response from a section of Gashead support that it prompted the club to issue a warning on the official website, reminding fans that abusive language is not acceptable.

Tom Eaves and Derek Riordan both made their home debuts, and first-year professional Ross Staley was named on the bench for the first time in a senior matchday squad. Riordan's first appearance at the Mem came despite him being at the birth of his daughter in Scotland earlier that day, resulting in him having to fly back to Bristol for the game.
