Tom Reeves will take charge of the Iron's away Sky Bet League Two encounter against Northampton Town on Saturday.
The Birmingham-based official will arrive at Sixfields for his fourth game of the season in what is his debut campaign in the EFL. He spent three years on the National League prior to his promotion.
His first competitive game of the season saw him oversee Leyton Orient's 3-0 home win over Exeter City where he issued two yellows and a red. Meanwhile his latest match came in midweek as he took charge of Newport County's 2-0 home win over Plymouth Argyle in the Papa John's Trophy - a game in which five cautions were issued.
Being new to the EFL, it will be Reeves' first encounter officiating both the Iron and the Cobblers.
Last season, he took charge of a total of 15 matches in the National League, including one play-off game, and one in the FA Cup, showing 53 yellow cards and three reds.
On Saturday, he will be assisted by Dean Treleaven and Conor Farrell, while Andrew Hendley will assume the role of fourth official.
