Going into the game, Bristol Rovers were unbeaten in eleven games, their last defeat being the 1-0 defeat away to Leeds United shortly before Christmas. It's the first time the sides have met since the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final 10 months before.

There were a couple of changes in the lineup from the previous game against Cheltenham Town - Joe Jacobson returned from international duty with Wales Under-21s, relagating Chris Carruthers to the bench from the starting lineup. Also included amongst the substitutes was new loan signing Anthony Pulis, and dropped from the bench were Lewis Haldane and Richard Walker.
