Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt wants to make one more signing before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
Long-term injuries to Daylon Claasen and Granwald Scott have left the Clever Boys thin in central midfield, according to Hunt.
"We need to sign a player maybe. We need to get one to help us somewhere, we are short," Hunt said after his side's perfect start to the season ended with a 1-0 home loss to SuperSport United at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday night.
"I knew it was going to come but I thought I was going to get through against SuperSport unscathed then go from there. But we will need one because we have long-term injuries for two of them."
The Students have recruited Ricardo Goss, Haashim Domingo, Bantu Mzwakali, Simon Murray, Terrence Dzvukamanja, Mxolisi Macupu, Vuyo Mere, Lehlohonolo Nonyane, Robyn Johannes, Brighton Mhlongo, Gift Motupa and Deon Hotto for the new campaign.
Meanwhile, Hunt admitted the joint-log leaders, who have nine points from four games, were not at their best against his former employers.
"It was all about grinding. Even a point would have been okay but we try to win games and make changes. I tried to win the game and it backfired.
"We were not good tonight to be fair. I mean they were not good as well. They sat in and played breaks, it was a draw written all over it. But all credit to SuperSport United.
"You don't want to lose games like this but still, there was nothing in the game, there was no chance. There was not really much, we didn't test the goalkeeper enough. We are better than that."
