Gillingham striker Danny Kedwell is set continue playing, rather than undergo a hernia operation.
Kedwell was due to be operated on after complaining of groin problems but his initial surgery was cancelled after a mix-up at the hospital.
The 10-goal striker was penciled in again for an operation on Thursday, January 2nd but opted instead to continue playing. On Friday night he helped Gillingham to a 1-0 win over Wolves.
Right in pain now was wondering when it was going to kick in ??— danny kedwell (@DKedwell) January 4, 2014
A third date for an operation was lined up this Thursday but once again the Gills are having second thoughts.
Boss Peter Taylor told the club's website: "He is feeling OK. The reason he started the other day is because I was convinced he was going to have the operation on Thursday. I thought if he has that operation he then won’t be around for a month and I couldn’t risk playing Bayo against Wolves.
