Craig Fowler selects his latest SPFL Team of the Week, with the Dunfermline hat-trick hero Faissal El Bakhtaoui the star man.

GK - Jamie Langfield (St Mirren)
Few Buddies fans were crowing about the manner of their victory at Alloa but a win’s a win and it moves them further from the relegation play-off spot. Jamie Langfield pulled off a miraculous save to keep them level at 0-0.

DR - Jon Robertson (Stenhousemuir)
Shifted over to right-back for the match with Forfar Athletic, Robertson put in an excellent shift as Stenny ended a six-game run without a victory as Colin McMenamin's late header won it.

DC - Ben Gordon (Livingston)
While Falkirk were disappointing, there was little doubt they were the stronger side against Livingston and would have won if not for the heroics of the away defence. In particular, Gordon put in a stellar showing to earn a much-needed victory.

DC - Craig Sives (Cowdenbeath)
The experienced centre-back was a reassuring presence at the back as Cowdenbeath chalked up their first victory in five games to move out of the relegation places with a 1-0 win at a Peterhead side who were unbeaten in 19 games.

DL - Rabin Omar (Annan Athletic)
Omar took on the role of an attacking full-back for Annan's thumping 5-0 victory over Montrose. He linked very well with Josh Todd down the left and swung in the cross that earned the penalty from which Annan opened the scoring.

MR - Harry Forrester (Rangers)
The wide player was a real driving force for Rangers in their 4-3 win over Queen of the South. He burst through the defence to open the scoring and helped the hosts stay on top of the contest.

MC - Jamie Adams (Ayr United)
Ayr United's title challenge suffered after the injury to Adams and they'll be thoroughly relieved to get him back and playing to his best before the play-off charge. He was his usual composed and industrious self in the middle as the Honest Men defeated Stranraer on Saturday.

MC - Ross Callachan (Raith Rovers)
Raith made it six games unbeaten, with five wins, as they defeated Morton 1-0 at Cappielow. While Kevin Cuthbert pulled off an eye-catching stop, it was Callachan in the centre of the park who took the plaudits, acting as a real driving force for the visitors.

ML - Josh Todd (Annan Athletic)
The midfielder took his tally for the season to an impressive 14 goals, netting twice in their 5-0 victory at Montrose as Jim Chapman’s men moved into the top four.

FC - Faissal El Bakhtaoui (Dunfermline Athletic)
The striker continued a terrific season with a hat-trick as Dunfermline clinched the League 1 crown. It was fitting the Pars’ star man took centre stage on the day, and he sealed the victory with a tremendous overhead kick. This week's star man.

FC - Greig Spence (Cowdenbeath)
Spence worked himself into the ground by being a constant nuisance to the Peterhead backline. He didn't have much to work with but still grabbed the only goal in a vital 1-0 win.
