On 30 August 2008 Rovers took on Leeds United. Rovers named the same 16 for the fourth league game running. New signing Jo Kuffour travelled to Yorkshire, but wasn't included.

Steve Elliott scored an own goal to give Leeds an early lead, but Rickie Lambert, with his fifth league goal in four games, and Darryl Duffy, his third in four, put Rovers in front. Despite creating plenty of chances, it took until the 71st minute for Leeds to equalise through Jermaine Beckford.
