Paul McShane will miss out on a reunion with Albion in the FA Cup at the Amex on Monday.

The Hull defender has been sidelined for the rest of the season by ankle damage sustained in Tuesday's home defeat by Southampton.

McShane suffered the injury in an accidental collision with his own goalkeeper, former Albion loanee Steve Harper, who is likely to face the Seagulls.

Irishman McShane is fondly remembered by Albion fans for scoring the winning goal against arch-rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park during 40 appearances on loan from Manchester United in 2005-06.

Harper played five games for Albion on loan from Newcastle two seasons ago.

The 38-year-old is expected to keep his place against the Seagulls, despite the availability of Allan McGregor after a three-match ban.

Pity really, he reads the game well but he's been caught for pace so many times in his career that I'd have backed KLL WB SM or the new boy to take him to the cleaners at some stage in the game.

Agree.However OG may be influenced by the cup draw on Sunday.If we draw a top PL team I think he may and should put his strongest team out the following day with the chance of a money bonanza.A lesser draw and he may field a weaker team although his "weaker teams" have done him proud so far!

I'm not sure why the draw would matter. We are now in the realms of BIG money for every win, guaranteed TV money etc. To beat Hull would bring a huge boost to the club in so many way. And drawing a non-top PL team would open up the possibility of a game at Wembley. So who cares about who we draw...
