BRADFORD CITY CONFIRMED AS LEAGUE OPPONENTS

20 May 2016

Bradford City have been confirmed as one of the Iron's league opponents in 2016/17 after they lost their play-off semi-final to Millwall.

After losing their home leg 3-1 against the Lions, Millwall brought the Bantams back to The Den where both sides could only play out a draw.

The Lions go through to Wembley to face Barnsley after their 6-1 aggregate victory over Walsall in the other semi-final.

With just the finals of League One and League Two to take place, it will be either Barnsley or Millwall 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.
