“Staying fit is my main priority now, not missing any more games and increasing my fitness levels," he said.
The Hunter Ports Newcastle Jets have finally broken the away game curse and what better way to return to the field than with a win.
English football star, Francis Jeffers helped lead the Jets to their 1- nil win over Brisbane Roar last Saturday evening at Suncorp Stadium.
“The match against Brisbane was great," Jeffers said.
"All the boys put in a massive effort and it paid off, we matched Brisbane with skill and intensity.
“Our defensive line looked solid and that was reflected with Brisbane not being able to break through.
“However, I think the best thing to take from the game is the fact that we won away from home.
"Finally we will gain some away game confidence and stop people talking and writing about our losses.”
Having spent the last few weeks on the bench Jeffers was eager to get back onto the field and play with his teammates.
“I have really missed the game these last few weeks. Having been sidelined due to injury so early in the season was very unlucky,” the striker said.
“As we enter the second half of the season I don-t want to miss out on anymore field time.
“It feels great to be out amongst the boys again and I don-t want to give that up.”
Jeffers will be hoping for a healthy, fit and injury free business end of the season.
“This season so far has been slightly unlucky," he explained.
"I was unfortunate to get a niggling injury only five or six weeks after arriving in Australia and my fitness wasn-t at it-s best, and as a result I gained an injury.
“Yes, it-s in the back of my mind that my contract is up at the end of this season and I have definitely enjoyed my time with the Newcastle Jets, but I am used to this feeling by now, it-s the nature of the industry."
This weekend the Newcastle jets take on rivals Sydney FC at Sydney Football Stadium and Jeffers is ready to steal the victory.
“Having come off the back of such a great victory and with the boys so full of confidence, it would be a waste of time if we travel to Sydney this weekend and don-t come away with another win,” Jeffers added.
“We will definitely be travelling to Sydney ready to upset the FC."
Tune in this Sunday at 5.00pm and watch your Newcastle Jets meet Sydney FC and hopefully gain another away game win.
