The Iron know 22 of their League One opponents for the 2016-17 season.

Barnsley secured promotion to the Championship following a 3-1 victory over Millwall in the play-off final at Wembley on Sunday.

It means the Lions stay in the third tier, and there is just one more opponent for next season to be determined.

We will face one of Plymouth Argyle or AFC Wimbledon, depending on who emerges victorious in the League Two play-off final on Monday.

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.
