City look to extend their unbeaten run as they round off the first month of the new campaign.
Middlesbrough, under the management of former player and England international Jonathan Woodgate, head to BS3 for the Saturday lunchtime kick-off with just one win from their five league games so far.
It's in contrast to their strong start in 2018/19 and the two clubs went toe-to-toe with Derby County in last season's play-offs battle.
The Robins are four games unbeaten and have taken maximum points from their last three games.

Scorer: Adam Webster 31'
Adam Webster’s first-half header has sent City back into the play-offs in a well-earned win against Middlesbrough.
Lee Johnson’s side pressed the Smoggies from the off and after surviving a crossbar and goalline clearance scare, Webster rose to give City a half-time advantage.
Tony Pulis’ side wasted a number of chances, with Assombalonga striking the post, while Max O’Leary was in form to keep the hosts at bay and earn a clean sheet.
Marlon Pack curled a shot narrowly wide as City almost squeezed a second goal but a defensive tactical switch saw Johnson hold out to take the points back to Bristol.
Bristol City: O'Leary, Hunt, Webster, Wright, Kalas, Dasilva, Brownhill, Pack, Paterson, Weimann, Diédhiou. Subs not used: Baker, Pisano, Smith, Kelly, Palmer, Eliasson, Taylor.
