Yeovil striker Jake Edwards may be looking at a four week lay off as a mid-season operation is on the cards. Edwards is thought to be suffering from Gilmore's Groin, a condition that is familiar to Yeovil players as a number including Nick Crittenden and Kevin Gall can testify from last year.
Gary Johnson said : He might need an operation. We are not sure yet, but he has to see a specialist this week. It has been a problem for Jake, because that sort of thing saps your energy.
The Western Dail Press reports : Gilmore's groin - when a player suffers a tear to his abductor muscles. It is a common complaint suffered by players who have stepped up a level in fitness.
