19th April 2008 saw Rovers host Gillingham in what would prove to be a significant landmark in the 2007-08 season. A disappointing run of form late in the season had seen Rovers slip dangerously close to the relegation zone, but a 1-1 draw, earned thanks to a late Steve Elliott wonder strike, was enough to make the team safe from the drop.
