THE Brewers return to the Pirelli Stadium looking to extend an unbeaten run to eight games.

Bristol Rovers are the visitors on Saturday, October 21, with a 3pm kick off.

Dino Maamria’s side made it seven games unbeaten with a 1-0 win at Lincoln City on Saturday and beat Cambridge 2-1 in the last game at the Pirelli Stadium.


Rovers manager Joey Barton joined the club in February 2021 when they were in danger of relegation and steered them to League One survival. He signed a new three-year contract in the summer of 2022. Barton had previously managed Fleetwood Town from 2018 to 2021.


Since 2011 the Brewers and Bristol Rovers have played each other 13 times, the last seven games all being League One fixtures. The Brewers have won six of the 13 games and have drawn three, but Rovers victories have been more emphatic, including a 4-0 at the Pirelli Stadium last season and a 7-1 at home in 2012.


Along with all other EFL fixtures this weekend, before kick-off we will remember the innocent victims of the ongoing and devastating events in Israel and Palestine. Football’s thoughts are with them, their families, and friends, along with all the communities that are affected by the escalating conflict

There will be a bucket collection for the Sarcoma UK charity at the game.

Christine Rhodes of Sarcoma UK writes:

“Last season, one of Bristol Rovers’ players, Nick Anderton, had to retire from football after developing an uncommon form of cancer called sarcoma.

“He needed an operation that saw his knee and part of his femur removed. Thankfully he has recently announced he is free of cancer.

“But not everyone is so lucky. Our treasured, inspirational daughter, Hannah, tragically passed away from sarcoma at the age of 29 - within nine months of a late diagnosis.

 “Sarcoma can affect any part of the body, on the inside or outside, including the muscle, bone, tendons, blood vessels and fatty tissues. About 5,300 people are diagnosed with sarcoma every year in the UK.

 “I am a supporter of the charity Sarcoma UK that funds vital research, offers support for anyone affected by sarcoma and campaigns for better treatments.

 “There will be a bucket collection at the match for Sarcoma UK. Any donations will be gratefully received and will help to ensure everyone affected by sarcoma receives the best treatment, care, information and support available and to create the treatments of the future.”
