The tie will take place at Glanford Park.

Scunthorpe's Carabao Cup tie at home to Port Vale will go ahead on Saturday despite an Iron player testing positive for Covid-19.

The unnamed player returned a positive result during the most recent round of testing but it will not affect the first-round match.

"The club is following all the EFL's Covid-19 protocols and will not name the player in question," said a statement from the League Two club.

"We ask that their request for privacy and confidentiality are respected at this time.

"In following those protocols, we can also confirm the home Carabao Cup match against Port Vale on Saturday, September 5 will still go ahead as planned."
