Rovers welcome Bradford City to The Memorial Stadium, the teams last met on 24th November 2012 with a crowd of just over 5,000, Rovers led three times but had to settle for a draw.
Guy Branston scored with his first ever touch as a Rovers player to head them in front against his old side but Nahki Wells levelled from a tight angle.
Tom Eaves struck with a low drive before Carl McHugh headed in for 2-2.
Michael Smith's volley put Rovers in front again only for James Hanson to nod in an equaliser before Nathan Doyle and Wayne Brown saw red.
The pair were involved in an ugly touchline scuffle which saw Bradford's Doyle sent straight off and Rovers' Brown receive a second yellow card.
We are expecting a crowd in excess of 9,000, therefore please arrive in good time to avoid queues.
