Juan Zuniga has successfully undergone surgery this afternoon on his knee injury, and will wear a brace for the next 10 days.
The Colombia international was at Villa Stuart earlier today for the operation, which, according to several sources was a success.
The defender will now wear a protective cast for the next week and a half, and only then will it be apparent how long the 27-year-old will be out for.
