Rovers played at home against Luton Town for the 2007 Boxing Day fixture in their twentieth league game of the 2007-08 season.

Bristol Rovers v Luton Town[]

Going into the game Rovers were 19th in League One, only a single point above the relegation places, and Luton were 22nd, two points behind Rovers and in the drop zone. Rovers won 2-1 at Kenilworth Road earlier in the season, which was the 38th meeting between the two teams in the Football League. The 39th Football League meeting of these sides was a remarkable one, with Rovers failing to earn a win despite a three-man advantage at the end of the game, and even conceding an equaliser when the opposition was down to nine players.
