League Two side Swindon Town have brought back Jerry Yates from Rotherham United after his blistering form for the Robins during the first half of the campaign.
The 23-year-old netted 13 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions during the first half of the season while at Swindon, as he formed a lethal partnership with Eoin Doyle as they guided the Robins into the automatic promotion places.
However, Swindon’s strikeforce was depleted this month, when Doyle was recalled by Bradford City and Yates was recalled by Rotherham last week as time was running out for Richie Wellens to find replacements at The County Ground.
Yates came on as a second-half substitute for Rotherham against Peterborough United last Saturday, before the striker returned back to Wiltshire where he will hope to continue his goalscoring form.

The 23-year-old striker could be joined up front again by Doyle, who has been told he is free to leave Bradford in the last couple of days as the transfer window slams shut tomorrow.
Swindon are currently flying high in League Two, sat top of the table with Exeter City two points ahead of them.
Yates is a good signing for Swindon, as he will be able to add a goalscoring threat to their attack once again and he will be coming back into a squad that he is very familiar with.
The striker will be wanting to help push on Swindon’s ambitions of getting into League One again, and his goals up front, as well as his creativity, could be enough to guide Wellens’ team to the league title or automatic promotion.
