The Iron will begin their 2018/19 Sky Bet League One campaign away at Coventry City on Saturday (kick-off 3.00pm).
Manager Nick Daws will be hoping his side can get off to the perfect start, but the newly promoted Sky Blues will also have aspirations of starting the season with three points.
Ex-Iron boss Mark Robins guided Coventry City through the play-offs in League Two last season, beating Exeter City 3-1 at Wembley.
Josh Morris (minor thigh injury), Matt Gilks (long-term knee injury) and Rory McArdle (one match suspension) are the only definite absentees.
The first of those players is set for a scan on Friday to establish whether he can step up his comeback, while the latter is recovering from a heel problem which ruled him out of the home friendly against Lincoln the previous week.
Funso Ojo and Duane Holmes have both returned to training but have missed parts of pre-season so will be assessed ahead of the game, with the long-term picture considered.
In terms of the opposition, Abu Ogogo has declared himself fit to make his Coventry debut against the Iron on Saturday.
The summer signing from Shrewsbury has seen his pre-season preparations disrupted by a thigh strain. However, Ogogo built on his half-hour run out against West Brom by featuring for the Under-23s this week to crank up his fitness levels.
United scored two late goals to beat Coventry 3-1 at Glanford Park on the final day of the 2016/17 season.
The away side took the lead, but Kevin van Veen pegged the Iron back level before Neal Bishop and Hakeeb Adelakun sealed the victory.

Our full record against Coventry is as follows:
ONE TO WATCH...
Last season’s top scorer Marc McNulty has left to join Championship side Reading so Coventry will be looking to Jonson Clark-Harris for goals this term.
Clarke-Harris came through the youth system at the club and became their youngest ever player to play in a first team match.
He then left in 2012 to sign for Peterborough United, before moving to Oldham Athletic and Rotherham United.
The forward re-joined Coventry on loan in January and then made the move permanent this summer.
