Rotherham United have recalled talented hitman Jerry Yates from his loan deal at Harrogate Town for a second time.

Yates has looked lively up front for Town and has pierced the net four times during his two loan spells at the CNG Stadium.

Town initially loaned the youngster at the end of October but the deal was cut short when the Championship side needed cover for Leon Best's suspension.

Simon Weaver resigned the talent before Christmas but a spree of postponements has led to a frustrating run of fixtures.

Yates scored the only goal of his second spell at Town in the 4-2 defeat against Chorley.

He scored twice to inspire Town to a 3-0 win at Corby Town in November and also found the net against Boston United.
