History of the Bristol Rovers v Barnet fixture

Bristol Rvs. prepare to entertain Barnet at Memorial Stadium on Sunday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. All the previous meetings between the two have been won by the Pirates.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Memorial Stadium was less than a year ago, in November 2005, the Pirates carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Two match.
