Craig Fowler selects his latest SPFL Team of the Week, with Dundee forward Greg Stewart the star man for his performance against Ross County.

GK - Jamie Ewings (Dumbarton)
The Sons are currently holding on to their place in the Ladbrokes Championship as they remained two points ahead of Livingston in the relegation play-off spot. Both sides recorded 0-0 draws at the weekend, with Ewings pulling off a couple of solid stops amid a commanding performance in goal.

DR - Cammy Kerr (Dundee)
The right wing-back got up and down the flank all day long in Dundee's 5-2 win over Ross County that puts them on the cusp of a top-six place. His tormenting of opponent Richard Foster even contributed to the Ross County defender's early substitution.

DC - Andy Webster (St Mirren)
The former Hearts man put in one of his strongest performances in a St Mirren shirt as the Buddies fought their way back before eventually being forced to settle for a 2-2 draw with Hibs. Webster was dominant in the air as St Mirren repelled most of what Hibs threw at them.

DC - Jason Kerr (East Fife)
The young defender, on loan from St Johnstone, scored the game's only goal at Arbroath as East Fife move closer to the Ladbrokes League 2 championship crown. The Fife now sit four points clear with only four games remaining.

DL - Graeme Shinnie (Aberdeen)
Another terrific performance from an excellent player having a tremendous season. Shinnie was strong in defence, a threat to Hamilton in attack and played a part in a special team goal as Aberdeen swept aside Accies 3-0 on Sunday.

MC - Julien Faubert (Kilmarnock)
The former Real Madrid player kept up his fine form in the centre of the park for Kilmarnock. They may have gone another game without a goal, but Kilmarnock look much more organised and robust further back, adding another clean sheet from the trip to Firhill.

MC - James Craigen (Raith Rovers)
An all-action display from the Raith midfielder in a manic contest against Rangers. The hosts refused to quit and allow Rangers to win the title on their home turf, as they kept going until the very end to earn a dramatic 3-3 draw.

AMR - Patrick Roberts (Celtic)
Roberts provided that little bit of extra quality that Celtic required to see off a troublesome Hearts side at Parkhead. His two finishes, particularly the first, were of the highest calibre as Celtic kept their lead at the top of the Premiership table.

AMC - Greg Stewart (Dundee)
Granted the role behind the strikers due to the absence of Gary Harkins, Stewart thrived, scoring twice and being a constant thorn in the side of Ross County. His display was typified by his second goal, where he led Andrew Davies and Ian McShane on a merry dance before firing the ball into the net.

AML - Andy Stirling (Stranraer)
Stranraer swept aside Airdrieonians to continue their charge towards securing a place in the play-offs. Stirling, along with Willie Gibson and Paul Cairney, was instrumental in dismantling the Diamonds en route to a 4-0 win. He crossed for the opener before adding the third goal to secure the points.

FC - Jordan Kirkpatrick (Clyde)
Playing the second striker role, Kirkpatrick made it two from two in his Clyde career. He was at the heart of everything the Broadwood club did in attack, though it wasn't enough to earn them the win. Clyde led in the second half but had to be content with a stoppage-time penalty saving a point after Montrose had taken the lead only seconds before.
