City Stars duo resumes training ahead of Gor Mahia clash

Nairobi City Stars received a major injury boost with Stephen Ngong and Peter Benches Obio resuming training.

Obiyo was kept on the sidelines with a thigh injury while goalkeeper Ngong was out with a knee injury.

“They are both back and starting light training, albeit with the rest under close supervision. This is a start and with time they should be able to join the rest,” said team doctor Brian Otieno Odongo.

The players shared the joy of getting out of the lonely rest program away from the rest of the lottery.

“I’m feeling much better now and I’m happy to be back among my teammates I’ve missed so much,” said Obiyo.

Ngong said, “I am now concentrating on rehab. At least now I can move around and run. I hope to be back to full fitness soon.”

Both Opiyo and Njunge have not been considered for a match since Round 24 against Bandari in mid-March 2022.

While Njunge was excluded from the season ending in mid-June this year, Opiyo is hoping to get playing time before then.

With the two returning to training, the only other players are striker Eric Ombja who has a knee injury, Oliver Maluba, and Ronnie Cola.
