Rovers beat non-league Corby Town 3–1 to progress beyond the first round of the FA Cup for the first time since the 2007–08 season, when they reached the quarter-finals of the competition.

Rovers dominated the first half of the game against the Conference North side, but had only a single goal lead at the break thanks to a penalty awarded when Callum Reynolds fouled Mustapha Carayol and converted by Scott McGleish. Their sixth-flight opponents gave them a scare in the second half, when Reynolds atoned for his first half indiscretion by equalising for the Steelmen, before goals from Carayol and Chris Zebroski saw Rovers safely through to the second round where they faced AFC Totton.

The match marked debuts for Andy Dorman, who started the game after having joined on loan from Crystal Palace earlier in the week, and Jordan Goddard, who came on for the final 86 seconds of the match, having been included in the matchday squad for the first time after impressing in the under-18s team.
