Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Dunfermline Athletic hat-trick hero Nicky Clark the star man.

GK - Mark Ridgers (Inverness Caley Thistle)
The goalkeeper conceded twice in ICT's 2-2 draw with St Mirren on Saturday but he was the unanimous pick for man of the match with several superb stops.
DRC - Stephen O'Donnell (Kilmarnock)
Another terrific performance from the defender, who has been on fire since early winter. This time his rampaging from right-back helped Killie to comfortably defeat Hamilton Accies 2-0 at Rugby Park.
DC - Stephen Bronsky (Elgin City)
Goalkeeper Brett Long made some good stops and Darryl McHardy also shone but Bronsky gets the nod for an impressive showing at centre-back as Elgin easily defeated Stirling Albion 3-0 to boost their play-off hopes.
DLC - Jackson Longridge (Livingston)
The West Lothian side increased their lead in second place thanks to a 3-0 win at Dumbarton. The Lions sit eight points ahead of Morton and nine in front of Dunfermline and Dundee United. Many of their stars shone in this one but Longridge's contribution in defence and attack gets him the nod.
MR - Roarie Deacon (Dundee)
The winger gave veteran Aaron Hughes a tough time as Dundee recovered from an early setback to claim a point against Hearts at Dens Park. Deacon now has the honour of providing the cross from which Sofien Moussa scored his first league goal from open play.
MC - Stuart Armstrong (Celtic)
The midfielder was back to his swashbuckling best as Celtic steamrolled past Ross County, winning 3-0 at Parkhead on Saturday. His driving runs were a source of concern to the visitors throughout and he also nabbed the second goal shortly after half-time.
MC - Mark Kerr (Ayr United)
The Honest Men are hitting a rich vein of form at just the right time. They won for the fourth successive game to down East Fife 3-2 in Methil and remain three points ahead of Raith Rovers in the Ladbrokes League 1 title race. Former Falkirk man Kerr was able to control proceedings from the centre of the park.
ML - Jordan Kirkpatrick (Alloa Athletic)
The playmaker netted twice as Alloa out-scored Arbroath in a five-goal thriller at the Indodrill Stadium. The hosts came from two goals down to move ahead of the Red Lichties and into third place in League 1.
FRC - Greg Stewart (Aberdeen)
Two goals, including a peach of a second, for the former Dundee favourite. His man-of-the-match contribution helped Aberdeen to a dominant 4-1 win at home to St Johnstone, which should set the Dons up nicely for the run-in.
FC - Nicky Clark (Dunfermline Athletic)
The Pars moved above Dundee United into the final play-off spot thanks to a 3-1 victory against Queen of the South at East End Park. They had Clark to thank for that win as the striker scored three times against his former side, earning himself star man honours in the process.
FLC - Russell McLean (Peterhead)
The striker netted two goals and generally impressed with his all-round play, especially holding the ball up, as Peterhead kept their slender lead (goal difference over Montrose) at the top of League 2 with a 3-0 triumph over Clyde.
