Bristol Rovers and Manchester United have met on only seven occasions; twice in the league, twice in the League Cup and three times in the FA Cup. The most famous meeting between the teams among Bristol Rovers fans was the second one, which Rovers won 4-0 at Eastville in the FA Cup in 1956. The most recent meeting was in Lee Martin's testimonial game, which was a pre-season match in 1999 featuring David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Ole Gunnar Solskaer.
