BRISTOL ROVERS WEEKLY ROUND-UP

4 November 2016

We take a look at what's happened at the Mem over the past week!

It's been a week of mixed emotions at the Memorial Stadium this week and we take a look back at some of the highlights.

Three Points Against Fleetwood Town

Rovers finally played their rearranged fixture with Fleetwood Town and came from behind and scored two second-half goals to defeat Fleetwood Town in front of a packed Memorial Stadium.

Over 10,000 Gasheads watched on as Matty Taylor canceled out Ashley Hunter's first half strike before Cristian Montano's first goal of the season wrapped up all three points to send Rovers up to fifth in the SkyBet League One table.

Festive Fixtures All Ticket

Following Tuesday night's bumper crowd of over 10,000 coupled with the usual increase in attendance around Christmas the club made the decision to make the two fixtures ALL TICKET.

Darrell Clarke's men entertain Coventry City at the Memorial Stadium on Boxing Day before AFC Wimbledon come to town on New Years Eve.

Supporters can purchase tickets for both fixtures now online by clicking here, or by visiting either of the clubs retail outlets.
