Newly-promoted Scunthorpe kick off their Coca-Cola Championship campaign with a tough trip to Premier League drop-outs Charlton.

The unfashionable Lincolnshire club, who capped their remarkable rise by winning the League One title in May, head to The Valley on Saturday, August 11.

Blackpool, who return to the second tier after a 29-year absence, also have their work cut out after being handed a difficult opener away to Leicester.
