History of the Bristol Rovers v Wrexham fixture

Bristol Rvs. are ready to welcome Wrexham to Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having chalked up an impressive 13 wins out of 19 previous matches.

The previous match played between the two at Memorial Stadium was within the last three years, in November 2002, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a League Division Three match.
