The 25-year-old has not featured for the Shrimpers this season after he was shipped out on loan to Championship outfit Ipswich.

But with an ever-increasing injury list at Roots Hall, manager Paul Sturrock has recalled the versatile player and rewarded him with a start against the Cobblers.

Mohsni told the club's official website: "First of all I would like to just apologise to everyone at the club for what has happened in the past.

"The manager and I have spoken about returning to the club. The manager has always been very good with me and I have returned to repay the faith he has put in me.

"Hopefully I can play a big part in helping the club after all the injuries they've suffered over the last few weeks."

Sturrock added: "Bilel has returned in a time of need because with all the injuries we are really struggling.

"He and the club regret what has happened in the past. Bilel is a maverick but he is a good man and a very good player and with all the injuries we have he will be a big help."

ell, if he'd be unable to reject an offer from Barcelona or Madrid, he may as well join Arsenal while he's waiting for them to call. It's a logical progression.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.
