The striker joins the Iron until the end of the Sky Bet League One campaign.

Robinson has made 57 appearances for Doncaster since joining from Championship promotion hopefuls Derby County in 2013.

The striker has scored nine goals since joining the Rovers, including four in his 28 appearances this season, but will be hoping to gain more prolific form at relegation threatened Scunthorpe.

The move sees the 26-year-old join up with a familiar manager in Mark Robins who he played under at Huddersfield during his loan spell in the 2012-2013 season.

Robins’ Scunthorpe, who were thrashed 4-0 at the hands of fifth placed Sheffield United on Tuesday, will be hoping that Robinson can be the catalyst to end their poor run of form.

Scunthorpe fans were hoping for a unlikely top six finish just over a month ago but are now looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone after picking up just three points from the last eight games.

Robinson could make his debut this Saturday when the Iron travel to fellow relegation rivals Notts County in a game which could see either side end up in the relegation zone should they lose and other results go against them.
