GK – Max Currie (Airdrieonians)
The Diamonds shot-stopper kept a clean sheet in their 0-0 draw with Queen’s Park at Firhill. But his heroics came in the penalty shoot-out which followed, saving two to clinch a bonus point for his side.
DEF – Scott Taggart (Alloa Athletic)
It was an impressive afternoon for the Wasps, who came from behind to defeat Premiership opponents, Livingston, 2-1 at the Indodrill. Taggart put in a fine performance at right-back and scored a sublime solo effort in the second half.
DEF – Jamie Hamilton (Hamilton Accies)
Accies eventually came out on top against Falkirk, after a back-and-forth affair where the Bairns were reduced to 10 men in the second half. Young defender Hamilton popped up with the decisive goal in the 87th minute to cement his side’s place at the top of Group E.
DEF – Charlie Mulgrew (Dundee United)
Work smarter, not harder. United new boy Mulgrew has made a habit of scoring some cracking free-kicks down the years. However, his winning goal against Arbroath may have been the most unique yet. From what looked to be a prime crossing opportunity, Mulgrew caught the Lichties keeper off guard and swept the ball into the net from 35 yards!
MID – Dom Thomas (Dunfermline Athletic)
A player with the capability for the spectacular, Thomas came back to haunt former club Dumbarton on Saturday. A cracking piece of skill and a thumping finish from the winger helped to double the Pars’ lead early on, in a game which they went on to win 5-1.
MID – Scott Brown (Peterhead)
Peterhead skipper Brown has picked up right where he left off last season, with another fine display in the middle of the park. He scored the opener and ran the show from midfield as the Blue Toon swept aside fellow League 1 side Cove Rangers 3-1 at Balmoor.
MID – Mark Gallagher (Forfar Athletic)
The on-loan Aberdeen youngster made a huge impact off the bench in the Loons’ 1-0 win over Brora Rangers. He grabbed the only goal of the game after 80 minutes, his first senior strike!
MID – Scott Tiffoney (Partick Thistle)
Another day, another top performance from the Thistle winger. Tiffoney looked as sharp as ever in the Jags’ 2-1 win at Ochilview, threatening down the left with his pace and direct running. He assisted Thistle’s first, and was heavily involved in the build-up to the second.
FWD – Kevin van Veen (Motherwell)
While van Veen didn’t get on the scoresheet, the Dutchman’s hold-up and link-up play was vital for the Steelmen as they fought their way back into the game from 2-0 down at half-time.
FWD – Kris Renton (Cowdenbeath)
Experienced forward Renton was the man of the moment for the Blue Brazil in their 3-2 win over Brechin City. He opened the scoring after 26 minutes. Despite Cowden going 2-0 up, Brechin fought back to make it 2-2, before Renton grabbed a late winner for the home side with just a minute left to play. He is the Matchday 3 Star Man!
FWD – Nathan Austin (Kelty Hearts)
GOALS. GOALS. GOALS. Nathan Austin just loves scoring goals! The Kelty Hearts number 9 had his shooting boots on as he welcomed former club East Fife to New Central Park on Saturday. Austin scored twice in a decisive 3-0 win for the SPFL new boys.
