Take a look at everything going on at the Mem Saturday

Finally we are back at the Mem for a Saturday fixture, Rovers welcome Rochdale to The Memorial Stadium.

Last time the sides met Rovers took the lead when Kaid Mohamed's shot hit the inside of the post and crept over the line.

The visitors equalised with the first attack of the second half when sub Joe Bunney capitalised on poor defending to steer a shot past Steve Mildenhall.

Matthew Lund met Michael Rose's cross at the back post to give Keith Hill's side all three points.
