Fulham defender Zat Knight has apologised for his recent indiscretion which saw him axed from the team.

Knight was punished for breaking a club curfew by being left out of the team which lost 3-2 to Manchester United a fortnight ago.

He is likely to be recalled to the side for Monday's game against Charlton Athletic, live on Sky Sports 1, after Chris Coleman revealed he feels Knight has learned his lesson.

The England international is hopeful he can overcome his recent lapse and has said sorry for transgressing the boundaries.

"I've apologised to the management, the directors and the players," said Knight.

"The players know that I was very upset by the situation, especially the punishment. Obviously, I deserved to get punished and it was very hurtful to miss a big game like Manchester United.

"I've been working hard over the last two weeks to show the manager, the players and the fans, who I also need to apologise to, that I want to be part of the team.

"You have to learn from your mistakes, that's what makes you a bigger and better person.

"During the time I've had away from the team I've looked at myself. I want a career at the highest level and I'm only going to do that by not making mistakes.

"I just want to put everything behind me and when I get the chance to play again, hopefully, I can put things right on the pitch."
