Harper made two saves Saturday against Stoke City, but allowed a goal in the 62nd minute as Hull City lost 1-0.

Harper is expected to be the Hull City starting goalkeeper for the remainder of the season as Allan McGregor is out with an injury. Saturday was a promising start on the road for Harper, but with matches against Swansea City, Manchester United, and Arsenal coming up, Harper could struggle to produce fantasy value in the Tigers' next three matches.

Harper came off the bench in Wednesday's match against West Ham United after Allan McGregor was sent off with a red card. Harper allowed one goal as the Tigers lost 2-1.

Harper is expected to see more playing time as McGregor was injured in the collision that led to his red card. Harper has managed to keep two clean sheets in six starts this season, but both came against Sunderland, and the Tigers have no more remaining matches against the Black Cats.

Harper made three saves en route to keeping a clean sheet Saturday against Sunderland.

Harper now has two clean sheets in his limited time as Allan McGregor's backup. Both of Harper's clean sheets have come against Sunderland and he will look to keep a clean sheet against a team other than the Black Cats when Hull City face Southampton on Tuesday.

Harper made two saves but allowed a goal midway through the second half that spoiled his clean sheet bid during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

Harper was impressive to limit Tottenham to just one goal, but the lack of a clean sheet prevented him from having more fantasy value. He should see a few more starts before Allan McGregor returns from his red card suspension.

Harper is expected to be Hull City's starting goalkeeper for the next three matches after Allan McGregor picked up a red card against Crystal Palace on Tuesday, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Harper has made three starts this season, but struggled in his most recent start when he allowed four goals to Southampton in November. With his starts coming up against Tottenham, Sunderland, and Southampton, he will have tough matchups to overcome in order to provide fantasy value.

Harper came on at the start of the second half for injured teammate Allan McGregor (knee). Harper allowed an own goal that wound up being the difference in Hull City's 2-3 loss to Manchester United.

Harper is expected to remain in goal until McGregor is able to return, a date that has yet to be set.
