Rovers' first league game since the departure of manager Paul Buckle resulted in their first league win for two and a half months. Caretaker-boss Shaun North was at the helm for the second of what would be three games in charge prior to the appointment of Mark McGhee eight days later.

Rovers took the lead early through full back Lee Brown, but Hereford equalised in the opening stages of the second half, thanks to Delroy Facey. Benoit Dalibard's dismissal for serious foul play gave Rovers a man advantage in the game, and they capitalised when substitute Scott McGleish grabbed a winner 18 minutes from time.
