Rovers made it a hat-trick of cup first round exits in the 2012–13 season when they were dumped out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle by League One side Sheffield United.

Although David Clarkson had given The Pirates an early lead, The Blades struck back twice in the second half to progress to the second round of the competition.
