Robinson, who has enjoyed 14 appearances for the Gills since arriving in January on a deal until the end of the season, will now undergo a knee operation and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The news comes as a big blow to Gills boss Martin Allen, who had eyed Robinson as a potential summer transfer target for next season's campaign in League One.

Allen said: "Anton's a fantastic player. He's a great lad on and off the field. He conducts himself superbly well.

"When I found out what it was, he's obviously got to have an operation to repair that. The recovery time is generally between six to nine months. He's a very, very fit lad. He's got a great work ethic so I wouldn't be surprised to see him back in six.

"He's got another year to go on his contract at Huddersfield which, for him, is a big relief of course."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
