CHIPPENHAM Town midfielder Rob Dean is set to undergo a second knee operation next Tuesday.
The 24-year-old tore all four of his knee ligaments when he suffered a dislocation in last week's abandoned clash with Hungerford Town and the Bluebirds man went under the knife for the first time yesterday.
Dean, who has only spent one night out of hospital in the last ten days, is set to remain at Swindon's Great Western Hospital in the lead-up to his second operation next Tuesday.
Meanwhile, his Bluebirds team-mates turn their attentions to this weekend's Calor League Premier Division clash with Biggleswade Town at Hardenhuish Park.
Mark Collier's men drew 3-3 with the 15th-placed Waders last November.
