History of the Bristol Rovers v Chester City fixture

Bristol Rvs. prepare to entertain Chester City at Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The majority of those games have been won by the Pirates.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Memorial Stadium was just last season, in December 2004, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a League Two match.
