On 29 January 2008 Rovers travelled to Gresty Road for a League One game against Crewe Alexandra, which was their twenty-fifth league game of the season.

Crewe Alexandra v Bristol Rovers[]

Going into the game Crewe and Rovers were both near the bottom of the league, but a good FA Cup run meant that Rovers had several games in hand over the teams around them. The match ended in a 1-1 draw, thanks to an own goal by Crewe 'keeper Ben Williams late in the first half and an equaliser scored by Tom Pope early in the second half.
