Walsall will remain in League One next season to face the Iron after missing out in the play-offs.

The Saddlers were defeat by Barnsley in the play-off semi-finals, meaning Scunthorpe have learned their twentieth opponents in the league next season.

The Tykes won 6-1 on aggregate to make it to Wembley for the second time this season, with Bradford City currently trailing 3-1 to Millwall after the first leg of the play-offs.

With just one semi final second leg to take place, it's just two of Millwall, Bradford City and Barnsley remaining in the division, while Scunthorpe will face one of Plymouth Argyle or AFC Wimbledon, depending on who emerges victorious in the League Two play-offs.

Securing automatic promotion to League One are Northampton Town, Oxford United and Bristol Rovers, all of whom the Iron face for the first time since 2013-14.

Entering the English Football League's third division after being relegated from the Championship are Bolton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic and Milton Keynes Dons.

The home fixture against the Trotters will be their first competitive visit to Glanford Park, while United will face the Addicks for the first time since 2012.

Milton Keynes Dons return to the third tier after one season in the Championship.
