Bristol City are the visitors to the Riverside this afternoon (3pm). Here’s six of the best goals against the Robins.
Two goals come from former Boro midfielder Malaury Martin, who spent one season on Teesside.
The Frenchman’s first comes from our 1-0 triumph against Bristol in early December 2011, with his strike from outside the box finishing up in the roof of the net to secure all three points for Boro.
His second earned Boro a point at Ashton Gate in the reverse fixture, a powerful free-kick into the top right corner past former England goalkeeper David James.
Uwe Fuchs scored nine goals during his loan stint on Teesside and three of them came against the Robins, where he played a pivotal role in the promotion-winning campaign.
Boro defeated Bristol City 3-0 in March 1995 at Ayresome Park – the last season at the iconic stadium - with Fuchs grabbing all three.
His goal that clinched his hat-trick makes its way into six of the best, volleying home to wrap up the points, where the final season at Ayresome Park was crowned with promotion to the top flight.
In the reverse fixture from the promotion-clinching season, John Hendrie’s goal helped Boro to three points at Ashton Gate.
Scottish striker Hendrie took the ball round the Robins goalkeeper and picked his spot for the decisive goal for Boro.
Stuart Ripley notched a brace for Boro against this afternoon’s opponents in a 2-1 victory at Ayresome Park back in 1991.
Ripley, who made over 200 appearances for his hometown club, scored one of his two goals against City by taking a long ball down on his chest, beating a defender and rolling it past the goalkeeper into the bottom right corner.
Barry Robson got his name on the scoresheet on a memorable night for us at Ashton Gate in 2011, as Boro ran out 4-0 winners.
Ex-Bristol man Leroy Lita came back to haunt his former club by scoring two and Robson’s solo effort against the Robins was the most eye-catching goal of the game.
Robson, who holds the record for the fastest goal at the Riverside, made his way past two City defenders having picked the ball up just inside the home side’s half before scoring.
