Did anyone at the game see what happened yesterday?

Hurst on the radio admitted he followed the ball so didn't see it. Late challenge? How late?  
Lot of frustration with the ref yesterday around me came from not seeing their worst challenges, and for needlessly stopping play for a non-injured Connor Jennings.
Guessing some main standers or pontoonites may have seen what happened with Robertson; not seen it mentioned on here.
(I sit in lower findus about as far away from the incident to our left back in first half as you can get...)

As I recall, this was the situation: Robertson played the ball forward to one of our players and went to run on in support. Their player had stumbled and was off balance so couldn't hope to keep up with him so either stepped back into Robertson as he was going past or stuck his leg out to trip him. It didn't look malicious to me and the injury was probably a bit unlucky, but it should certainly have been a booking for a cynical foul. The referee didn't see a thing as he was following play upfield and the linesman who was just a few yards away obviously forgot to wear his specs so failed to see anything either.

I think his inury is a major worry and am crossing fingers for some good news - that the problem is minor. Inside of the knee is the area mentioned, so let's hope it's a bruise type issue and not a ligament, muscular twist/tear or meniscal injury that keeps him out for very long. I wouldn't want to be without him for the play offs as I think he's done really well in that position, To compound the concern, we'd probably be forced to move another of our most consistent performers (Magnay) out of position to cover the loss and bring in Parslow at RB, making us less balanced and solid defensively and somewhat less effective offensively. I think we'd cope, but it'd be a blow. Hurst stated that Gowling couldn't play at left back in case anyone was wondering. Tomorrow will perhaps bring an update on the injury.

Is it worth in the next few games trying Paddy again at left back? He did a decent job when playing there last season

I had the same injury early on this season, took me 2 months to recover. I'd say that's it for gregor for this year.

If asked I am sure GR would tell all what exactly happened, being that he was closest to the incident
