On 28 March 2009, Rovers hosted Stockport County in their 38th League One game of the 2008-09 season. The game came off the back of a defeat for Rovers, when they lost 1–0 to Peterborough United a week earlier, a result which had effectively ended the Pirates' outside chance of reaching the playoffs.

First team coach Paul Trollope named a starting eleven that featured two changes from the last game, with Stuart Campbell replacing Craig Disley in the centre of midfield and Jo Kuffour taking the place of the unwell David Pipe, making this the first time this season that the club's three senior forwards, Kuffour, Lambert and Duffy had all started the same game. On the bench, Disley took Campbell's seat and Ben Hunt came in for Kuffour, while the Stockport side featured future Rovers players James Tunnicliffe, Dominic Blizzard and Conrad Logan.

The game itself was fairly one-sided, thanks to Byron Anthony giving Rovers an early lead, and the advantage being doubled by a Rickie Lambert penalty shortly before the break. Stockport rarely threatened the Rovers goal, leaving the Pirates to take a comfortable win.
