The FA Cup was a happy hunting ground for Rovers last season as they reached the fifth round for the first time in 63 years.

Isthmian League side Chichester City received a bye to the second round after being pulled out of the draw last. Bury’s expulsion from league football left the draw one team short with the decision taken to award one team a bye.
