Pattison Ruled Out For Season

News reaching the Siya crew is that Wits midfielder, Matthew Pattison, has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

The experienced player recently underwent knee surgery to clear up a persistent niggle he was struggling with. As a result, it's now been confirmed that he won't be available for Wits' remaining matches as the league approaches its end stages.

The season has been something of a stop-start affair for the 27-year-old. At times he has impressed and chipped in with some important goals, whereas at other moments he has perhaps not delivered quite up to expectations.

Nonetheless, the player has been honest about his injury situation, and explained why it's unlikely he won't be back in the 2013/14 campaign.

He said, "I'm out for the season. It's about a four or five week rehab period after the surgery. I'm doing a bit of activation stuff at the moment as part of the process of recovery. Obviously, I had two knee ACL reconstructions 10 years ago at Newcastle United, and it's just wear and tear really since then. To be honest, I've done well to last this long and it's made sense to get my knee cleaned up. It was always niggling me and was swelling up after training. I also had a sight tear in my meniscus and that got repaired as well."
