The latest to suffer a serious injury is experienced left back Ruben Cloete. The 30-year-was involved in a sickening collision with Platinum Stars defender Vuyo Mere, in the club's recent 2-0 defeat in the Telkom Knockout.

This was revealed to the Siya crew by United's Team Manager, Quintin Jettoo.

He said, "Ruben has a fracture on his cheekbone as a result of Mere's knee. The X-rays show he has a fracture and he's going to see a facial specialist. We have to see if he'll need some slight reconstructive surgery.

"It's not a break and we're fortunate for that. We'll know after the operation is done exactly were we stand about how long he'll be out for."
