Bristol Rovers 2023/24 League One away days ranked in distance order - from Reading to Carlisle United

League One has become a little less West Country - with several long-distances added for the 2023/24 season.

Bristol Rovers now know their 23 opponents for the 2023/24 League One season. Play-off weekend saw us lose one team to the Championship, keep one, and also see one team promoted out of League Two.

We'll start with what happened first weekend and that's that Carlisle United beat much-fancied Stockport County to win promotion. Paul Simpson's side won on penalties, and will play in the third tier for the first time in nine seasons. The Cumbrians scored all five spot kicks and it was Ryan Rydel's miss that meant that Carlisle would go up.

Bank Holiday Monday, then saw the final spot confirmed, and it was Sheffield Wednesday who prevailed. They beat ten-man Barnsley in extra time after former Gas transfer target Adam Phillips was sent off. Josh Windass - son of Dean Windass - who scored the winning goal at Wembley Stadium against Bristol City in 2008 - scored with a minute to go, avoiding the lottery of penalties. Wednesday's promotion means they won't be coming to the Mem next year, but Barnsley will be.

As for the teams who had their fate sealed, relegated from the Championship were Reading, Wigan Athletic and Blackpool. Wigan will begin the season on minus eight points, whilst Blackpool have been here in recent years, but for Reading they will play in the third tier for the first time in three decades.

Ipswich Town and Plymouth Argyle replaced them with the Pilgrims winning the title, and the Tractor Boys finishing second. Leyton Orient came up as League Two champions and were joined by Stevenage and Northampton Town.
