Craig Fowler selects his latest SPFL Team of the Week in a 3-4-3 formation, with Alloa goalkeeper Scott Gallacher the star man.

GK - Scott Gallacher (Alloa Athletic)
Gallacher made nine saves in Alloa’s 1-1 draw with Rangers, the last of which was a terrific reaction stop from James Tavernier when the right-back looked set to nab all three points with a last-minute header. He is this week’s star man.

DC - Gary Warren (Inverness Caley Thistle)
The centre-half put in a rock-solid display in Inverness CT’s 3-1 win over title-chasing Aberdeen on Monday night. After a tough start, he helped keep Adam Rooney and Simon Church quiet for the remainder of the match.

DC - Stuart Findlay (Kilmarnock)
The on-loan Celtic defender played with an assuredness beyond his years as Kilmarnock recorded a crucial win at Motherwell. While Craig Slater and Greg Kiltie got the plaudits for scoring the goals, the win was built on a solid defensive foundation.

DC - Darren Cole (Livingston)
Having only recently returned from an injury which kept him on the sidelines for a lengthy spell, Cole played a starring role in the back four as Livingston frustrated Hibernian on Saturday evening.

DM - Thomas O’Ware (Morton)
Jim Duffy used his defender in the spoiler role in front of the back four and it worked a treat as Morton recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over Dumbarton to remain in play-off contention.

MRC - Greg Tansey (Inverness Caley Thistle)
Along with converting the penalty that put Caley Thistle 2-1 up against Aberdeen, Tansey also put in an all-action display in the heart of the midfield to help shut down Kenny McLean and Craig Storie as ICT deservedly won in the Highland capital.

MLC - Nick Ross (Dundee)
While he was perceived to be more of an attacking midfielder than a defensive one prior to this season, Ross is beginning to flourish in his role alongside Paul McGowan at the base of Dundee’s midfield. He showed both great tenacity and excellent distribution in the win over St Johnstone.

AM - Stefan Johansen (Celtic)
Returning to the attacking midfield role behind Leigh Griffiths, Johansen showed some of the form he demonstrated on a regular basis last season in the 2-0 win over Ross County. It will be an interesting battle to keep his spot, however, with Tom Rogic returning from injury.

FC - Kane Hemmings (Dundee)
The Dundee hitman took his tally for the season to 18 goals - with an astounding 12 scored in his last nine games - after netting a double in Dundee’s 2-0 win over St Johnstone on Friday.

FC - Thomas Orr (East Stirlingshire)
There’s life in Shire yet. They pulled themselves off the foot of Ladbrokes League 2 with a convincing 3-0 win at Queen’s Park. Orr, on loan from Morton, netted the first and played a big part in the victory. If he can keep up his recent form, four goals in six, then East Stirlingshire have a great chance of staying up.

FC - Nathan Austin (East Fife)
After an excellent run of results, East Fife are the closest challengers to Elgin City at the top of Ladbrokes League 2. That is in part thanks to the play of Austin, who yet again gets in our Team of the Week with a goal and fine display in Saturday's 2-1 home win over Arbroath.
