Away Facilities: Around 1,100 away fans can be accommodated in the terrace behind one of the goals, with further seats being made available to away fans in the main stand. The view from the terrace is decent, and because the end is covered, travelling supporters can drum up a noisy atmosphere. There is a club bar at the ground called the Robins Nest which allows in small numbers of away fans for a small admittance fee.
Last visit: Back in February a last minute wonder goal from Ollie Norburn salvaged a point for Rovers at Whaddon Road.
