On 4 October 2008 the first team made the long journey east to Essex to take on Colchester United at the Weston Homes Community Stadium. It was the first time Rovers had played at that ground, since Colchester had moved from Layer Road in the summer, and was the first game to be played between the two clubs for seven and a half years.

The match marked the 100th league game that Steve Phillips had played for Bristol Rovers in just over two years, since he joined in the summer of 2006. There were two changes to the starting lineup for the previous game against Crewe Alexandra - the two players who were injured in that match, Ryan Green and Steve Elliott, were replaced by David Pipe and Craig Hinton, with Joe Jacobson and Byron Anthony being brought onto the bench.

The game finished in a 1-0 victory for Rovers, with Rickie Lambert scoring his ninth goal of the season.
