Pattison Undergoes Knee Surgery

News reaching the Siya crew is that Wits midfielder, Matthew Pattison, has undergone surgery to correct a knee ailment he has been struggling with in recent times. 

The 27-year-old has endured something of a stop-start season punctuated by moments of good form, followed by spells where he possibly hasn't played up to his full potential. 

As recently as January, Pattison was in Gordon Igesund's squad for the Chan tournament, although he perhaps struggled in what was a make-shift squad.

In addition, the former Newcastle United player has been in-and-out of Gavin Hunt's first-11 at Wits in 2014. The Johannesburg-born star made just three starts in the new year, and has largely spent most of his time on the sidelines.

Nonetheless, it's since been revealed that in the last month or so, that the player has been struggling with a knee injury. Subsequently, the club have confirmed that Pattison has gone in for corrective surgery.

This was revealed to the crew by Wits' Chief Executive Officer, Jose Ferreira. He said, "Matthew was struggling with it for about a month or so. He went in for knee surgery this morning I think. I haven't spoken to our team doctor yet, so it's unclear at this stage how long he will be out for."
