Nyatama suffered a grade one muscle strain to the quad during the club’s 1-1 draw with Platinum Stars in a league clash last week.

The midfielder’s injury was thought to be a serious one, but the Bucs medical team have released a statement on the club’s website confirming that the 30-year old won’t be out of action for a long time having missed the Soweto derby against Kaizer Chiefs this past weekend.
