It came as a big blow to Wits to lose the likes of Matthew Pattison and Papy Faty in the centre of midfield.
Faty hurt knee ligaments and will be out for close to a year, while Pattison has returned home to England. With Sibusiso Vilakazi expected to make a move to Europe in the near future, it means we're short of reliable central midfield options.
Coach Gavin Hunt must prioritise filling this role - we need to find a player in the Hlompho Kekana mould. A combative player who has a brilliant strike in his locker as well.
Have your say - who in the PSL could Wits target for the midfield department?
