Profile

Bristol Rovers are managed by Graham Coughlan who replaced Darrell Clarke in January 2019. 

Founded in 1883, Bristol Rovers made it into the Football League in 1920 and haven't dropped out of it since, but they have failed to add any major silverware to their trophy cabinet in that time.

During their history, Rovers haven't always been up-and-down the lower echelons of the Football League, but they find themselves in League One with the chance of winning a third consecutive promotion.

Rovers have reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on a few occasions, whilst in the 2000s they managed to play at both Wembley and the Millennium Stadium after they won through to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final and the League Two play-off final, with the latter being a victorious one.

Numerous draws but few defeats has seen Bristol Rovers enjoy a strong run of results. Defeats against Burton Albion & Brighton & Hove Albion are the only black marks on a run that has seen them amass wins against Lincoln City, Oxford United, Tranmere Rovers & Cheltenham Town while sharing the spoils versus Gillingham, Accrington Stanley, Plymouth Argyle & Wycombe Wanderers
