Bristol Rovers and Chesterfield have met 34 times in competitive football with Rovers having by far the better record in these matches, with 19 wins to Chesterfield's seven. Rovers boast an impressive home record against The Spireites, having only ever lost a single game on their own territory, which was way back in 1964.

The clubs first met in an FA Cup second round match in February 1908, a game which saw Southern League Rovers beat their Football League opposition 2–0 at Eastville Stadium to progress to the third round, where they lost to eventual semi-finalists Southampton. It would be over 50 years before the teams would face each other again, when they were drawn together in the second round of the League Cup, again at Eastville. This time the scoreline was reversed, with Chesterfield progressing in the competition having picked up their first, and so far only, away win against The Pirates.

After these two cup games all meetings between the sides up until 2013 were in the third level of the Football League.
