Tom Reeves will take charge of the Iron's away Sky Bet League Two encounter against Barrow on Tuesday.
The Birmingham-based official will arrive at the Sands Venue Stadium for his 30th 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 a week ago when he oversaw Ipswich Town's 2-0 home win over Lincoln City, issuing four cautions.
He's officiated the Iron once previously earlier this season, taking charge of the narrow defeat at Northampton Town. He dismissed Manny Onariase early on for denying a goal scoring opportunity, along with three cautions - Lewis Thompson and Harry Davis the recipients for the two for Scunthorpe.
Two games later, he took charge of Barrow for the first time in their 1-1 away draw at Bradford City. Seven yellow cards were shown, four of which going to the Bluebirds.
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. So far in this season, he's taken charge of 29 games, issuing 98 yellow cards and four reds.
On Tuesday, he will be assisted by David Hunt and Marc Wilson, while Richard Wigglesworth will assume the role of fourth official.
