Tom Nield will referee the Iron's away league encounter at Newport County on Saturday.
He last officiated an Iron fixture in April 2018 when the Iron drew 1-1 away at AFC Wimbledon, and drew level late on through a goal from Lee Novak.
Prior to that, he was referee when the Iron defeated Grimsby Town 2-1 in the EFL Trophy during October 2017, secured through a brace of goals from Tom Hopper.
This is his third season as an EFL referee, with the 2017-18 campaign his first. He showed 65 yellow cards and two reds in 29 matches that term.
Last season saw him show 68 yellow cards and three reds in 21 matches, while this season has seen 25 yellow cards and one red inside ten matches.
Ravel Cheosiaua and Simon Beck are the assistant referees, while Darren Wilding will be the fourth official.
