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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
