On 14 November 2008 Rovers played Scunthorpe United in a League One match at the Memorial Stadium. The game was Rovers sixteenth league game of the season and their nineteenth in all competitions.

Going into the game Rovers had lost their last two matches, after taking four wins and a draw from their five matches in October. The recent run of defeats continued with this game, with Rovers going down by two goals to one, the three points sending Scunthorpe to the top of the league.

The Rovers starting lineup contained just a single change from their previous game, Steve Elliott returning from injury to replace the suspended Byron Anthony. During the match Rickie Lambert scored his sixteenth goal of the season, all in the league, to cement his position as the top goalscorer in England.
