Hull City boosted their chances of avoiding relegation as Dame N'Doye scored both goals in a hard-earned 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

N'Doye was heavily tipped by the Rotoworld team to perform well this this game-week and he didn't let anyone down with an outstanding display at Selhurst Park. The Senegal striker tapped home his first goal after Robbie Brady's effort was deflected into his path and sealed the points and his brace in the closing stages on the counter attack. Hull fully deserved the win, limiting a disappointing Crystal Palace side to a couple of tame efforts from Glenn Murray, and move in to 16th, one point clear of the relegation zone. The Eagles stay 11th.

Andrew Robertson has been in and out of the starting line-up in 2015 but will miss Week 34 for sure with an injured ankle.

Andrew Robertson was a revelation in the early stages of the Premier League season. He was one of newcomers of the first half of the season outside of the biggest of foreign buys. His fortunes have fades somewhat as Robbie Brady and he have split time since Brady's return to health. Robertson has also seen his form dip when he has gotten chances to play. Robertson will miss out on Week 34 and may have to work on his fitness to play more consistently next season.

Alex Bruce has a severely broken nose that has him at risk of missing Hull City's trip to Selhurst Park in Week 34.

A nose that looks like it has been through a sausage grinder seems like something of a family birthright in the Bruce family and Alex is keeping up the family tradition after suffering a severely broken nose. The injury may keep him out of Hull City's Week 34 trip to Selhurst Park. The uncertainty makes Bruce even less desirable as a fantasy option and he wasn't going to be in strong demand anyway given the match-up and Hull City's recent form.

Curtis Davies remains out of action for Hull City in Week 34 with a thigh muscle injury.

Hull City have a mini-crisis at the back with Curtis Davies definitely out for Week 34 and Alex Bruce doubtful as he struggles with a badly broken nose. Hull City already face a tough task in Week 34 as they travel to in-form Crystal Palace (last week's loss to West Brom not withstanding). Michael Dawson and James Chester are the likely starters but if Bruce isn't able to go then Hull City will be hard pressed to play with three central defenders as they frequently have this season. Given the match-up and Hull City's recent form, none of Hull City's central defenders is really worth starting this weekend if you can avoid it.

Mohamed Diame suffered a bit of a setback in his recovery this week with the club reporting that his knee was sore after training.

With relegation a real possibility, there is no room in Steve Bruce's starting eleven for a player who might have to be substituted early if his sore knee doesn't react well to playing. Diame hasn't been effective off the bench since his return to the squad and Bruce would have to be extremely desperate to accelerate the player's return given the renewed concerns. Fantasy managers should avoid Diame in all formats for Week 34 for sure and likely for the balance of the season.

Sone Aluko was a rare bright spot putting up double digit fantasy points in the Yahoo format as Steve Bruce's side lost 2-0 to Southampton.

Aluko got a rare start in Week 32 and came through with 10 points in the Yahoo system on the back of a shot on target, three fouls won, two successful crosses, a corner won and a pass intercepted. That's hardly "set the world on fire" stuff but it wouldn't be bad for a cheap price if there were any expectation that he would continue to start. With Abel Hernandez and Yannick Sagbo the only alternatives until Nikica Jelavic returns sometime in May, Aluko may continue to start but it's hardly a guarantee. If you're in a tough spot then Aluko might be worth a look but know it comes with a great deal of rotation risk.

Dame N'Doye, after looking great in his initial matches for Hull City, has faded quickly with a total of 16 fantasy points (Yahoo system) over the past four match weeks.

Maybe it's Steve Bruce, maybe it's something in the water at the KC Stadium. Whatever the cause, players from Nikica Jelavic to Shane Long to Mohamed Diame to Dame N'Doye have arrived at Hull City and immediately started scoring goals. Unfortunately, this temporary bump in form seems to desert these new acquisitions just as quickly as they have all fallen off after approximately a month of looking like the next big thing. Maybe he really is as good as his first few weeks and this is just a temporary slump but fantasy managers should revise their expectations to the reality that he's had just as many unimpressive days as he's had impressive ones now.

Mohamed Diame has returned to the Hull City squad with consecutive substitute appearances that resulted in negative fantasy scores.

Week 32 against Southampton was similar to the previous week. Mohamed Diame was involved but fantasy managers would be excused for not being thrilled about that fact. The surprise goal-scoring machine from earlier in the season has returned but his arrival in the Hull City line-up hasn't been nearly as exciting as it was when he first arrived. You can certainly write this off to knocking the rust off but given that the goal-scoring outburst looked like an outlier when it happened and there aren't many matches left, you should probably temper your expectations for Diame down the stretch if the past two weeks haven't already tempered them for you.

Curtis Davies' odd season continues with word that his status for Week 32 is uncertain due to a thigh complaint.

Davies' has been in and out of Steve Bruce's starting line-up even when healthy. He had a run of starts in the side due to injuries to Michael Dawson and James Chester but with both players now healthy it isn't clear whether he would start if he were healthy. For a player who was one of the revelations of the 2013-14 season, the 2014-15 season has been a difficult one. Expect that to continue with a summer move very possible. Fantasy managers should stay away from Davies down the stretch barring an injury elsewhere to the HCFC defense.

Gaston Ramirez is out of action for Week 32 due to the terms of his loan from Week 32 opponent Southampton.

Hull City will be struggling for attacking power against Southampton with Nikica Jelavic injured and Gaston Ramirez ineligible to face his parent club. Dame N'Doye and Abel Hernandez will almost certainly lead the line for Steve Bruce's side as they look to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone. It won't be an easy task despite the Saints' recent struggles.

Allan McGregor's form hasn't been great so there is some question as to whether the Scottish goalkeeper will keep his place as Hull City travel to the south coast for Week 32.

The less-than-spectacular form of Allan McGregor in recent weeks means that Steve Bruce faces a difficult choice in net for the Week 32 trip to St. Mary's. Steve Harper is standing by ready to deputize and with points at a premium, Bruce must decide who gives him the best chance to win. For most of the season, the clear choice has been McGregor when he's been healthy but that is less certain now and with every point at a premium in the relegation battle, fantasy managers should be wary of starting McGregor.

Tom Huddlestone returns to the Hull City squad for Week 32 action after completing his suspension.

The former Spurs midfielder returns to active duty for Steve Bruce's side after missing the past four matches due to suspension. Huddlestone may step into the David Meyler-sized hole in the starting eleven after Meyler was himself suspended in Week 31. The trip to St. Mary's will be a tough one for the club who have fallen back to the relegation pack a bit after a brief run of good form in March.

Hull City continue to sputter toward the finish line as they were defeated at the Liberty Stadium 3-1 by an organized Swansea City side.

Don't look now but Steve Bruce and company are slipping into relegation territory as QPR and Leicester both picked up three points today and narrowed the gap at the bottom of the table. The Tigers only goal came from a set piece, as Robbie Brady sent the ball into the area perfectly as Alex Bruce got a touch that set up the surging McShane who needed to just poke it in from point blank range. Otherwise, the attack had little spark, with Gaston Ramirez having to come off early with a knock not helping the cause. With the likes of Southampton, Liverpool and Arsenal comprising three of their next four opponents, Hull could be in serious danger come May.

James Chester, out since mid-January with a shoulder injury, is set to return to the Hull City squad for Week 31.

Chester was playing regularly and well when he was injured at West Ham in January. He has resumed training and is likely to return to the starting eleven as soon as Steve Bruce deems him back to full match fitness. Unless you are desperate for a center back, I'd recommend waiting one more week before seriously considering including him In your line-up.

Mohamed Diame has finally recovered from his knee injury and will be available to Steve Bruce in Week 31.

Diame was very effective for Hull City in the time between his move from West Ham and his knee injury. Now that he is healthy again Steve Bruce will want to get him into the line-up as quickly as is practical. Fantasy managers may want to give it one more week if they don't have the option switch players after line-ups are announced.
