All of Rovers' players out on loan saw match action but with differing fortunes.

Mauro Formica, Jack O'Connell, Anthony O'Connor, Bradley Orr and Bruno Ribeiro all saw game time for their respective clubs at the weekend.

Bradley Orr played his final match on loan for Ipswich Town as they slipped up on their travels at Rovers' opponents this Saturday - Bristol City.

Town opened the scoring at Ashton Gate in the first half through Daryl Murphy, but second half strikes from Steven Davies and Jon Stead saw the home side turn it around.

Orr played the full match as his loan with the Suffolk club came to an end.

Over in Italy, Mauro Formica made his debut for Palermo as they drew 1-1 with Cagliari.

The Argentine started on the bench, but played the last 20 minutes in Sardinia.

Bruno Ribeiro started for CA Linense in their game with Ituano, but picked up an injury and was replaced after just 15 minutes. The game ended goalless.

Jack O'Connell made his first start for York City following his move to the Minstermen last week in a 1-1 draw away at Gillingham.

York lead after just 17 minutes but were pegged back late on as the home side scored five minutes from time. 

O'Connell played the full match at centre half for York.

Burton Albion maintained their good run of form with a 1-0 win over Barnet at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.

Defender Anthony O'Connor played the full match as he home side won courtesy of Jacques Maghoma's third minute penalty.
