Our Argentinian full-back has been pencilled in to start the reserve team match against Arsenal at Highbury.
The 28-year-old was initially laid low by groin problems last year hasn’t played since our 1-0 defeat at Charlton Athletic on September 16.
He explained: “The problem started with a hernia on my left side and I had operations on both sides just in case.
“It then went to my abductors and my backside was sore, even in bed, and the pain stayed there. I saw loads of people, specialists, consultants and had more surgery which didn’t really help.
“About a month ago I went to see an experienced doctor who lives in Italy at the moment and in two and a half weeks he’s treated my back and I feel very good. Hopefully the problems will now stay away.”
Reserve team boss Theo Foley revealed: “Mauricio will certainly start the game and we’ll go from there. It’s great to see him back. He’s a very good player and a smashing lad as well.”
Theo’s young, in-form reserve side chase a fourth-successive win in the FA Premier Reserve League at Arsenal.
The side includes a number of players who have featured in Premiership squads in recent weeks including Ciaran Toner, John Piercy, Dave McEwen, Matthew Etherington - all on the bench at Filbert Street on Saturday — Ian Hillier and Steven Ferguson.
Kick-off at Highbury is 6pm.
Starting line-up: Kelly, Consorti, Hillier, Toner, Taricco, McEwen, Piercy, Jackson, Etherington, Ferguson, Kamanan.
Mauricio Taricco will end eight months of injury hell on Tuesday evening.
