COLCHESTER United keeper Aidan Davison will undergo an operation on his troublesome shoulder today.
The experienced keeper, who is also the goalkeeping coach for U's No.1 Dean Gerken and young deputy Mark Cousins, has not played for the first team since the 1-0 defeat at Coventry City on October 27.
The last three months have been a real struggle for 38-year-old Davison, who has made 109 appearances for the U's since his switch from Grimsby during the summer of 2004.

Davison himself said: “The shoulder has not been progressing as I would have liked. It's been very frustrating.”

Gerken suffered a head injury during the closing stages of last weekend's 1-1 draw at Bristol City, and as a precaution was taken to hospital. Cousins replaced him as an 82nd minute substitute.
But manager Geraint Williams confirmed: “Dean (Gerken) has been back in training this week, and he will be OK for this weekend.”
However, tomorrow's home fixture against Hull City will come too soon for midfielder Kevin Watson, who has been troubled by calf problems.
Williams said: “Kevin (Watson) has started training again, but he needs to get himself match-fit. He will not figure against Hull, but there is a reserves game next week against Norwich (on Monday), which he might play in.”
