February 2017 is a vital month that may well make or break the season for Bristol Rovers.

Rarely can a sequence of 6 fixtures have been so enticing, so anticipated or so challenging.

These matches are against top sides and involves games against some pedigree big-hitters.

During February, Bradford City and Sheffield United visit The Memorial Stadium within a 4 day spell.

It may even be the case that the game at Vale Park, on Saturday 18th, may prove to be the most difficult.

 Then just when mental exhaustion might begin to set in the league leaders, Scunthorpe United, call in.

This sequence of high-powered games needs choruses of Goodnight Irene to be at maximum volume.



It is not only the players and the coaching staff that need to up their game during these six matches

February requires Bristol Rovers supporters to turn up in numbers, to do their bit and then give even more.

The month starts and ends with trips to Lancashire in tricky games that will be very taxing.

Rochdale on the 4th February and Bolton Wanderers on the 28th are likely to be tough encounters.
