Allan McGregor returns to action after missing approximately six weeks with a shoulder injury.
Hull City welcome back Allan McGregor to a squad that infamously was on the losing end of Burnley's first Premier League win in Week 11. They will hope to get a lift from not only McGregor but also Nikica Jelavic and Michael Dawson who are returning from injury issues of their own. All three players trained fully during the international break and should be ready to go. Nov 21 - 11:33 AM

Allan McGregor is expected to miss the next six weeks with a shoulder injury, Steve Harper will deputize into mid-November.

Hull City have seen Allan McGregor make some spectacular saves and let in some that he probably should have saved. On balance, he has been OK but not great by any stretch of the imagination. With Hull City guilty of giving up points in the second halves of their last three matches it's worth seeing if Harper can help stem the tide. If not, McGregor will be back before too long and Steve Bruce can continue the search for what is going wrong toward the end of matches.

Allan McGregor made a spectacular save in the 35th minute against West Ham United to deny Enner Valencia a sure goal.

Enner Valencia had Allan McGregor dead to rights in a scramble in front of the goal. With McGregor moving from his left to his right, the Scottish goalkeeper was able to stick out a hand and poke Valencia's attempt away from danger. Given the angles involved it was a great bit of work to get enough power on the save to put it clear of danger but that's exactly what McGregor did.

Allan McGregor is set to start in the FA Cup final against Arsenal after recovering form and fitness sufficiently for manager Steve Bruce.

With Hull's biggest match of the season on tap today, their number one keeper has won the race to be fit for the occasion. While McGregor isn't among the top keepers in the Premier League, he is the club's number one and they should get a boost from his availability.

Allan McGregor has been out of action with various injuries since his ugly collision against West Ham but may win the race to play in Week 38.

Over and above just returning to action, McGregor will want to get some live match action in his bid to play in Hull City's FA Cup Final a week from Sunday against Arsenal. Without a first team match in nearly two months it would be difficult for Steve Bruce to feel good about choosing his usual first choice keeper.

To add injury to insult, Allan McGregor is suffering from a kidney contusion in the wake of his collision with Mohamed Diame yesterday which also saw him sent off.

McGregor isn't going to play in Week 32 regardless due to his red card suspension but he will see a specialist after spending Wednesday night in the hospital after his collision with Diame. Managers who may be interested in keeping him on their bench at a low price will get more news after his evaluation. In the meantime, Steve Harper and Michel Vorm are solid low-priced alternatives with good match-ups in Week 32.

Allan McGregor was at the center of a first half controversy as he was sent off for bringing down Mohamed Diame in the box. Mark Noble scored the resulting penalty for a 1-0 Hammers lead.

The play in question had a lot of moving parts. Mark Noble made a great run and saw his entry pass ricochet off of Diame's arm. Diame's touch put him in on McGregor who upended the midfielder who was in alone on goal before he could get off a good shot. The ball was cleared off the line by a defender with no call initial penalty call. After consulting with his linesman, who apparently didn't see Diame's touch, Mike Dean sent off McGregor and awarded West Ham a penalty that Mark Noble converted.

Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor received a late red card for a lack of discipline and will likely face a three match ban.

Hull City had used all of their substituted when McGregor received the red card in stoppage time so Tom Huddlestone had to step in at goal for the Tigers. It was a poor decision that will certainly make McGregor's manager unhappy and the goalkeeper has to keep his emotions in check in the future. Hull City were unable to equalize after going down to 10 men.

Allan McGregor made two fantastic saves in the first half for Hull City, keeping them in the match with Chelsea, but the Tigers were eventually tamed by the Blues in a 0-2 loss.

The Tigers had a chance to score the opening goal when a bad touch by John Terry left the ball in the path of Yannick Sagbo, but he sliced an open 8 yard effort wide, and Hull wouldn't come as close the rest of the day. McGregor kept Steve Bruce's side engaged however, with two marvelous saves, one against Oscar who had a clear shot in front of net that the keeper somehow was able to react to in time, the other from a David Luiz free kick that he was able to hoist just over the bar to keep the game scoreless. The Tigers now look to accrue points on the road in their next two, as they get set to face Norwich City and Crystal Palace.

Allan McGregor, absent with a thigh injury since mid-October, is ready to return to the squad against Crystal Palace in Week 12.

McGregor and Hull City were off to strong starts before his injury so the assumption is that he will return to the number one role now that he is healthy. The only question is one of timing. Steve Harper did a nice job deputizing and the way the team news was written was anything but definitive about who will start against Crystal Palace. If either keeper were a sure starter the home match against Crystal Palace would represent solid value but with even a little uncertainty the value disappears quickly in the face of options like Tim Krul vs. Norwich and Asmir Begovic vs. Sunderland.

Allan McGregor has been ruled out for approximately six weeks with a thigh injury picked up in the loss to Everton over the weekend.

The loss of McGregor is a big loss to Hull City who have exceeded expectations thus far in the campaign with a stouter-than-expected defense anchored by McGregor and Curtis Davies. It is likely that Steve Harper will deputize in McGregor's absence and at 4.27 his price is low enough that he may be an interesting value play when Hull have a strong match-up - specifically on November 2 when they host Sunderland and November 23 when they host Crystal Palace.
