A lacklustre Rovers performance, which saw them fail to match the highs of the previous week's 7–1 victory over Burton Albion, resulted in them suffering a 1–0 defeat to fellow mid-table side Port Vale in the closing stages of the 2011–12 season.

A first half goal from Marc Richards, who headed in a cross from former Pirate Sean Rigg on the 23 minute mark, was all that was needed to separate the sides. Rovers' chances of staging a comeback were not helped when Tom Parkes was sent off for serious foul play shortly before the break, and indeed, after scoring seven in their previous game, The Gas were unable to find the back of the net once in this match.
