Craig Fowler names his latest SPFL Team of the Week, with St Mirren skipper Stephen McGinn included and Forfar Athletic defender Andy Munro star man.

GK - Harry Lewis (Dundee United)
The keeper made two important stops from Declan McManus in the second half of Saturday’s 0-0 draw to ensure United left Dunfermline with a point. Unfortunately, he couldn’t stop his side slipping eight points behind St Mirren in the title race.

DC - Gregor Buchanan (Livingston)
The debutant put in a promising performance at centre-back as Livingston defeated Brechin City 2-0 in the Ladbrokes Championship. Buchanan started the game just three days after his release from St Mirren.

DC - Andy Munro (Forfar Athletic)
The defender was a true leader at the heart of the Forfar defence as the Loons managed to pick up a vital victory, defeating Albion Rovers 4-2. Returning from a loan spell at Clyde, he even managed to get himself on the scoresheet, notching his side's third. For his contribution at both ends of the pitch, he is this week’s star man.

DC - Michael Bolochoweckyj (Montrose)
A dominant performance from the lower-league veteran enabled Montrose to stay ahead of Peterhead at the top of League 2 thanks to a 2-0 win over Edinburgh City. ‘Bolo’ also set his side on the path to victory, knocking in Montrose’s first goal.

MR - David Gold (Arbroath)
The right midfielder tied his opposing marker in knots as Arbroath managed to extend their winning streak to three games with a 2-1 triumph over Queen’s Park. Capping a fine display, Gold even managed to net the winning goal on the hour mark.

MC - Stephen McGinn (St Mirren)
McGinn just edges out his team-mate Kyle Magennis for a place in this team following Saturday's 2-0 win at Dumbarton. The visitors dominated the game and could have won by more, with McGinn pulling the strings in the centre.

MC - Nat Wedderburn (Dunfermline Athletic)
The midfielder continuously broke up play as Dunfermline held Dundee United at East End Park. Despite the visitors having a man advantage in the middle of the park it didn't show on the day, with the Pars the better of the two sides in the 0-0 draw.

MC - Tom Taiwo (Falkirk)
A typically energetic and fearless performance from the diminutive midfielder as Falkirk managed to battle for an important 1-0 result away to Morton. The three points take Falkirk level with Dumbarton, who are in eighth place.

ML - Riccardo Calder (Inverness Caley Thistle)
The winger was slotted into the left-back position for Inverness Caledonian Thistle's hosting of Queen of the South on Saturday and the change worked a treat for John Robertson's side. Calder was a constant thorn to the away side as he made a series of surging runs from deep in the 3-1 triumph.

AM - Willie Gibson (Peterhead)
Another excellent performance from the gifted playmaker as Peterhead edged Stirling Albion in a 4-3 win at Balmoor. The ex-Kilmarnock winger even managed to score direct from a corner kick after 35 seconds, as the howling gales played havoc.

FC - Stephen Okoh (Stranraer)
Two goals for the English striker made him an easy selection, even if the first was granted to him on a plate by Airdrie goalkeeper Rohan Ferguson. Aside from his two strikes, Okoh put in a committed performance as Stranraer moved to within two points of the play-offs.
