On 21 October 2008 Bristol Rovers hosted Oldham Athletic in a League One match at the Memorial Stadium. It was the thirteenth league game of the season and the fifteenth in all competitions. Going in to the match Rovers were on a five-match unbeaten run, recovering from a poor start to the season.

First Team Coach Paul Trollope named an unchanged 16-man squad from the previous game, a 1-1 draw away to Huddersfield Town, while the Oldham lineup featured future Rovers loanee Daniel Jones. The performance was widely praised as Rovers comfortably won the game 2-0, thanks to goals from Rickie Lambert and Chris Lines.
