and live on Freeview channel 276
One thing is for sure after Bristol Rovers’ dramatic 7-nil victory against Scunthorpe - Gloucester Road will be a scene of celebrations tonight.
The Gas thrashed Scunthorpe in front of a packed Memorial Ground to leapfrog Northampton Town, who also won today, and clinched the third authomatic spot in League Two.
So joyous were the supporters when Rovers scored their 7th that many ran on to the pitch, halting the game for around 10 minutes before more celebrations at the final whistle.
It is an amazing side for the team which before Christmas were in the lower half of the table. But now the team and supporters can look forward to League One football next season.
And before then is the small matter of a promotion party. While the players have their awards event tonight, it is believed that a public event could be taking place on Monday.
More to be confirmed on that - but for now, enjoy these pictures and video of the Rovers fans and players marking an amazing day for the club, and one half of the city.
