According to McKinstry, Mathews had undergone a critical surgery in mid-August, which necessitated an eight-week recovery period, effectively sidelining him for the initial matches of the season.
In an emotional message addressed to the club's ardent supporters and the larger Gor Mahia family, Mathews expressed his heartfelt gratitude for their unwavering support during his challenging recovery phase.
“To all the supporters and the entire family, what can I say? Thank you for your support and belief. To the Gor Mahia fraternity, keep doing what you're doing; it's much appreciated. The hunt has just begun. It feels good to be back fully at Gor Mahia,” he eloquently stated.

CAF selected Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania to host the 2027 Africa Cup, over bids from Egypt, Botswana, Senegal, Algeria, and Morocco.
While Mathews was on the mend, coach McKinstry had no choice but to rearrange his defensive setup. This led him to work closely with Kevin Omondi, who has undoubtedly risen to the occasion.
Omondi, tasked with guarding the goal, delivered outstanding performances in the four matches Gor Mahia has engaged in this season. His commendable efforts have not only helped keep the team competitive but have also alleviated the pressure and allowed Mathews a stress-free recovery.
