Kenny Jackett's side will travel to Ashton Gate to take on Championship opponents in a behind closed doors contest on Saturday, August 29 (kick-off TBC).

The sides previously met in a friendly at the same venue back in July 2016, when they played out a goalless draw.

Bristol City finished the 2019-20 campaign in 12th position and were seven points adrift of the play-off positions.
