The poor start to the 2012–13 season continued with a 4–0 thumping at the hands of League Two leaders Gillingham, meaning The Gas had now gone five league games (seven including cup games) without having recorded their first victory of the season.

Gillingham, who included former Rovers defender Adam Barrett in their starting eleven, opened the scoring early on, when Danny Kedwell converted a penalty kick after he was brought down in the area by Tom Parkes. He doubled the Gills' lead ten minutes later, before Charlie Lee made it 3–0 just before the break. Substitute Chris Whelpdale completed the rout when he scored late in the game.

Rovers' misery was to be compounded when it was later confirmed that the knee injury which saw Matt Harrold substituted during the first half would keep him on the sidelines for the remainder of the season.
