The League Cup (currently known by the sponsored title of the Capital One Cup) is a competition for Premier League and Football League teams only. The furthest Rovers have progressed is to the Quarter-Finals and have done this twice.

Rovers were the first team ever to win a League Cup match, due to their game against Fulham in 1960 kicking off early, at 7:15pm. They also have the rather dubious honour of being the only team to have been knocked out of the competition before the first round, after losing the only ever preliminary round match to Boston United in 2002.
