David Rock will be the man in the middle for the Iron's home league encounter against Bradford City on Tuesday night.
The Hertfordshire-based official is the originally appointed official on the fixture and will travel to the Sands Venue Stadium for his 22nd game of the season and his seventh in Sky Bet League Two. The current campaign is Rock's second in the EFL after being promoted ahead of the 2019-20 season.
His first game of the campaign was the Carabao Cup match between Crawley Town and Millwall which ended 3-1 to the Lions. He showed one yellow card in the match. Meanwhile, his latest game was Swindon Town's 1-0 home win over Wigan Athletic last Tuesday when he issued his fourth red card of the season.
When he was scheduled to referee us a month ago, he's refereed 16 games, showing 46 yellow cards and one red. He's now up to 67 yellows and four reds, just five games further on, meaning he's issued 21 yellow cards and three reds in his last five matches.
He has been involved in one previous Iron game, which came earlier in the campaign away at Exeter City. One yellow card was issued in the game, to Aaron Jarvis, in what was a patched up Scunthorpe side ahead of their next three games being suspended due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
Meanwhile, he's yet to be involved in a game with Bradford City, so Tuesday will be the first take he's taken charge of the Bantams.
In 2019-20, he took charge of 26 games, issuing 87 yellow cards and four reds, while so far this season, in 21 games, he's shown 67 yellow cards and four reds.
On Tuesday, he will be assisted by Stephen Wade and Geoffrey Liddle, while Rebecca Welch has been appointed as the fourth official.
