On 16 February 2008, Rovers hosted Southampton in an FA Cup 5th round tie at the Memorial Stadium. Rovers had been on a good run of form going into the game, and Southampton had been doing poorly, not having won away from home for over two months.

For the second game running the starting lineup was unchaged from the previous match, and the only change on the bench saw Byron Anthony displace Anthony Pulis due to Pulis being cup tied.

A deflected free kick from birthday boy Rickie Lambert late in the game was enough to take Rovers into the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time in fifty years.

The game was watched by a then Memorial Stadium record attendance of 11,920.
