Hull City manager Steve Bruce has confirmed that goalkeeper Allan McGregor has returned to full training and he has the possibility of featuring against Burnley in the Premier League. The Scottish international has been missed in the last few weeks.
The form of Hull City has dipped even more and they are in danger of being sucked into a relegation battle. The upcoming match against Burnley represents a great opportunity to pull themselves clear of the relegation zone given that it is against one of the teams favourites for the drop. Hull are clear favourites to get three points despite the match being away from home.
Burnley are yet to get a single win in the division since getting promoted in the summer. Their recent match ended in a 3-0 defeat against Arsenal, although they were not expected to get anything from the match against such a top outfit. Apart from McGregor, goalkeeper Steve Harper has also been absent. Despite spending a lot of money in the summer, Hull would not have been expecting themselves to find a relegation fight. Bruce has warned that despite Burnley yet to taste success this season, they remain a dangerous proposition nonetheless. One of the major problems for Burnley has been scoring goals.
“I still see Burnley as dangerous. I can’t stress that enough to the players. They are full of life and have not given up.They have a great attitude and with the manager they have, I never expect they will give up.Burnley still have a chance of survival because they are not cut adrift yet.They [McGregor and Harper] have a chance. We’ll see how they are. It was the first time they’d joined in.You have to be ready and if there’s a slight doubt, they can’t play,” said Bruce.
