After sitting out a National Super League (NSL) round 11 game against Mount Kenya United on Sunday 27 October 2019 due to injury, goalkeeper Levis ‘Lovae’ Opiyo has now been passed fit for the upcoming contest against Migori Youth on Saturday at Camp Toyoyo.
Opiyo was rushed to Hospital in the previous game against Fortune Sacco mid through the first half after suffering whiplash that saw him clip the upright as he dived to save a dangerous shot on goal. He was replaced by Ronny Kagunzi.
An MRI check revealed he had no head injury from the heavy impact but as precaution was omitted from the Mount Kenya game.
“Just before the last game I felt a slight pain as I turned my neck. But I am now fully fit and ready to reclaim my spot in the starting lineup in the upcoming game against Migori.” Said a beaming Opiyo
Save for his substitution in the game against Fortune Sacco and the miss in the last game, Opiyo had clocked all minutes for City Stars in the first nine games of the season.
