ALBION kick-off 2019 with a trip to the Memorial Stadium to face Bristol Rovers, hoping to make it a league double over the Gas.

HEAD 2 HEAD

Of the seven games they have played, the Brewers have beaten Bristol Rovers three times. The latest meeting between the two came earlier this season when Academy graduate Ben Fox netted in the 90th minute to earn all three points for Albion.
