SPFL Team of the Week

Craig Fowler, false nine in the Terrace Scottish Football Podcast collective, selects his SPFL Team of the Week, picking out Accies striker Carlton Morris for special recognition.

Craig Fowler, false nine in the Terrace Scottish Football Podcast collective, selects his SPFL Team of the Week, picking out Accies' Carlton Morris for special recognition after the striker bagged a double against Dundee United on Sunday.
GK - Scott Gallacher (Alloa Athletic)
For the second time against his old side, Gallacher pulled off a number of fine stops to earn an unlikely point for the Ladbrokes Championship's bottom club with the 1-1 stalemate at Ibrox.
DC - Steven Anderson (St Johnstone)
Terrific battling performance from the Saints centre-back as his side defeated Aberdeen 3-0 on Friday night. While the Perth strike partnership caused all sorts of problems for the Dons' back-line, Anderson and Joe Shaughnessy completely negated the influence of Simon Church.
DC - Chris Robertson (Ross County)
Having not featured regularly since Paul Quinn re-signed for the club, supporters of Robertson will be heartened by his display at Celtic Park as he put in a solid defensive performance to help the visitors claim a point.
DC - Thomas O'Ware (Morton)
OK, I'm cheating a little here because O'Ware played in midfield against Hibernian, mopping up in front of the back four in an admirable 0-0 result for the hosts. However, there are a number of outstanding central midfield candidates this week, so the Morton star gets slotted into his natural position in this side.
DM - Chris Millar (St Johnstone)
The long-standing Saints midfielder put in an industrious and combative shift in the centre of the park in the win over Aberdeen, including robbing Barry Robson in possession high up the park, which led to Saints' third goal.
DM - Scott McDonald (Motherwell)
Now you think I'm going too far. Scott McDonald at defensive midfield?! Well, actually, McDonald played as part of a midfield three against Hearts at the weekend, and while he wasn't quite a defensive midfielder, there were times when he was the deepest of the three as he, Keith Lasley and Chris Cadden swapped positions. He also did a power of running and helped create the space for Lionel Ainsworth to fire in the game's only goal.
MRC - Alan Cook (Stenhousemuir)
Stenhousemuir produced one of their best performances this season when they needed it the most. 1-0 down at half-time to Cowdenbeath and looking like almost certainties for the relegation play-off, they came roaring back in the second half with three goals, two of which came from Cook. His second, and Stenhousemuir's third, was a stunning left-foot drive from 25 yards.
MC - Ross Draper (Inverness CT)
The midfielder scored once and played a part in two other goals as Inverness CT came from behind to defeat Kilmarnock 3-1 on Sunday. While he may look unorthodox in possession, Draper has a terrific ability to make things happen in the opposing penalty area.
MLC - Dylan Easton (Elgin City)
Another excellent performance from Easton as Elgin all but guaranteed their place in the play-offs with a 3-0 win at East Stirlingshire. Easton netted in the victory - a result that means Elgin require only a point from their final home game against Arbroath to secure their spot in the top four.
FC - Kane Hemmings (Dundee)
The striker continued his tremendous season with two goals in Dundee's 2-1 victory away at Partick Thistle. He showed great striker's instincts on both occasions, taking his overall tally to 25 for the season.
FC - Carlton Morris (Hamilton Accies)
The on-loan Norwich striker saved arguably his best performance of the season for when his side needed it most. If Hamilton can defeat Kilmarnock this weekend they'll be assured of top-flight safety after Morris netted twice (including bullying Guy Demel in the build-up to his second) and assisted the other in a valuable 3-1 win at Dundee United. He's this week's star man.
