Bristol Rovers and Burnley have met thirty times in competitive football, with Rovers having the marginally better record thanks to their 11 wins over Burnley's 9.

The teams first faced each other in the FA Cup in January 1909 when Burnley, who were in the second division of the Football League, beat a Rovers side still playing in the Southern League Division One 4–1 at Eastville. The clubs wouldn't meet again for another 49 years after that match, when they were again drawn to face each other in the FA Cup in January 1958. This time Rovers were the eventual 3–2 winners, although they needed at replay at Turf Moor after the game at Eastville ended in a 2–2 stalemate.

Burnley also provided opposition on Rovers' path to Watney Cup glory in 1972.
