Robbo, today spoke to the Rotherham Star backing his midfielder; "I was shocked and surprised by the reaction from Brentford yesterday, there was no issue at the game on Saturday and this was an unfortunate accident" said Robins.
Elder is in hospital in Sheffield with a fractured cheekbone and eye socket and bleeding in his left eye.
"Whilst it is distressing to hear of such an injury, I am adamant there was no malice, At the time it looked nothing more than two players committed for the ball, the referee saw nothing and restarted with a dropped ball. I have looked at the replay and there is no malice or intent and it is an unfortunate accident."
"Everyone at Rotherham United wishes Nathan Elder all the very best for a speedy and full recovery." Robins added.
