On 20 December 2008 Bristol Rovers made the journey north to Cheshire to face Stockport County in a League One fixture. This was Rovers' twenty-first league game of the 2008-09 season, and it came off the back of a 2–0 win against Tranmere Rovers, a victory which had ended a previous run of six games without a win.

First team coach Paul Trollope kept faith with the same starting eleven who faced Tranmere, and made two changes on the bench – Ben Hunt and Richard Langley taking the places of Mike Green and Sean Rigg, while the Stockport side featured future Rovers loanee James Tunnicliffe. The game ended in a 3–1 defeat, thanks to a hat-trick by Craig Davies, the second player to bag three in a game against the Pirates this season after Craig Mackail-Smith in Peterborough United's 5–4 victory. Craig Disley's first goal of the season provided the consolation for Rovers in a game that tied the club record for their biggest ever defeat to the Hatters. They had previously lost 3–1 on two occasions, once in the 1967-68 season, and again in 1995-96.
