Midfielder Newton Ochieng aka Toni plans to engage the right gears to get back on track after being put aside from league games due to an injury suffered against Shabana in matchday seven of the 2023/24 FKF Premier League in late October 2023.
Newton suffered the injury in the closing stages of the first half in Homa Bay Stadium and had to exit the pitch. That setback has kept him out of the Simba wa Nairobi squad for four league matches. He is now focused on a bounceback.
“My season so far hasn’t been good and hasn’t been bad either. Due to the injury I got, I feel I have been off the team as it has left me inactive,” he said
“But more is to come because I am recovering well. I have started training with the team which I’d say is a good start,”
“I am happy now and ready to join my teammates to help each other in gaining vital points in the upcoming league games,” added Toni
According to team physio Brain Otieno Odongo, Newton is ready to return to the pitch when given the nod.
“From my side, he is now fully fit. He’s back to full training and I have since handed him back to the technical bench for consideration of fielding him in the games to come.” added Brian
Till the injury setback in Homa Bay, Newton had featured in the starting six games of the season.
