THEO ROBIN­SON ad­mits the in­flu­ence of Paul Dickov was the de­cid­ing fac­tor in his de­ci­sion to swap Derby for Don­caster.

The 24-year-old striker scored 20 goals in 80 ap­pear­ances for the Rams but spent the lat­ter half of last sea­son on loan at Hud­der­s­field.

And af­ter pen­ning a twoyear-deal at the Keep­moat Sta­dium, Robin­son claims Donny boss Dickov can get the best out of him.

“I feel very ex­cited to be here,” he said.“The man­ager was keen to sign me and it’s nice when the man­ager backs you, so I was more than happy to come in.

“I’ve played in Don­caster be­fore; I scored here a cou­ple of years ago.

“I have also been told, by play­ers that have been here pre­vi­ously, that it is a good club – it’s a great op­por­tu­nity for me.”
