The Iron return to Glanford Park for a 12.30pm kick-off this Saturday, with Notts County coming to town in the Vanarama National League.
The league have moved the kick-off of all games on Saturday, December 3rd to 12.30pm, with the league saying in November: "The League hope that both England and Wales progress in the World Cup past the group stages. However, there is a potential fixture clash for the Last 16 involving the runners-up of Group B, (England and Wales’ group), kicking off at 3pm on Saturday 3rd December.
"To avoid any possibility of a clash the League are moving all kick-off times forward to 12.30pm on this date."
There will also be a slight change in the dugout for the Iron moving forward, with Tony Daws deciding to step down from the position of interim first team manager on Monday to return to his role as academy manager.
Michael Nelson will assume the interim first team manager role until further notice, with support from Paul Musselwhite and Lee Turnbull.

IRON TEAM NEWS
Iron striker Joe Nuttall will serve a three-match suspension following his red card from a 50/50 challenge last weekend away at Wealdstone, which was appealed by the club but subsequently knocked back by the FA.
Defender Reagan Ogle becomes available for contention on Saturday following a full week’s worth of training.
Winger Aiden Marsh (foot fracture) has been recalled by Barnsley following an assessment from the parent club which deemed he will not be ready for any further action with the Iron.
Liam Feeney, Jordan Hallam and Kgosi Ntlhe (hamstrings) continue to miss out through their respective injuries.
Notts County played out a scoreless draw at home to Yeovil Town two weeks ago. The Nottingham-based side didn’t play last weekend along with a handful of National League sides, whilst the Iron were away against Wealdstone.
The Magpies were relegated to the National League for the first time in their 157-year history in 2019, after finishing 23rd in League Two.
Ex-Scunthorpe striker Kyle Wootton recorded back-to-back-to-back top scorer figures for County during their time in the English fifth tier so far, which has seen unsuccessful play-off campaigns in all three seasons.
With the former moving on to 2021/22 National League champions Stockport County this summer, it’s the turn of newcomer Macaulay Langstaff to fire the Magpies back into the EFL.
After netting 28 goals from 39 appearances at Gateshead in the National League North, hitting 17 from the opening 15 National League games has set the striker on course for another blitzing season.
