Craig Fowler selects his latest SPFL Team of the Week, with Hearts striker Juanma the star man for his double against Aberdeen on Friday night.

GK - Jamie MacDonald (Kilmarnock)
Killie fully deserved their vital 3-0 victory over St Johnstone but it might not have happened without the heroics of their best player this season. He made three terrific stops at various points in the match to keep them ahead.

DR - James Tavernier (Rangers)
In the Petrofac Training Cup Final, the full-back continued what he's been doing all season, and that's putting the ball in the back of the net. Tavernier's volleyed strike was an absolute stunner.

DC - Dougie Hill (Alloa Athletic)
The Alloa defenders continually put their bodies on the line to deny visitors Hibs and preserve their first home win of the season. Hill was the stand-out player from the resolute unit.

DC - Michael Dunlop (Albion Rovers)
The centre-back not only put in a solid performance to help Rovers earn a clean sheet at Ayr United, he also netted the winning goal with a volley that found the back of the net via the underside of the crossbar. It was a huge win for the Coatbridge club as it moves them to within three points of the play-offs.

DL - Callum Crane (Berwick Rangers)
The Borderers chalked up yet another clean sheet as they beat Clyde 3-0 at Shielfield – helping East Fife’s title bid in the process – and Hibs loan player Crane was in excellent form on the left flank.

MR - Patrick Roberts (Celtic)
Another terrific performance from the Manchester City loanee helped Celtic to control their match against Motherwell at Fir Park. A 2-1 scoreline, secured via a goalkeeping error, may not sound all that convincing, but Celtic were dominant for most of the game and should have won by more.

MC - Iain Vigurs (Inverness CT)
Vigurs put in a classy performance in the centre of the park for Inverness CT in their 2-0 win at Tannadice. He also managed to bag himself the second goal after his shot from the edge of the area was deflected into the net.

MC - Ali Crawford (Hamilton Accies)
Crawford broke a barren spell in front of goal by netting Hamilton's opener in their vital 2-1 win over Dundee. It was Crawford's first strike since January amid a much-improved performance. If he can get back to his best then Hamilton have a terrific chance of staying up.

ML - Josh Todd (Annan Athletic)
The midfielder took his incredible goal tally to 17 for the season, including five in his last three games, as Annan moved up into second place following their 4-1 win over Arbroath. Four teams are fighting for three play-off spots with only one point between them.

FC - Juanma (Hearts)
Two goals and an all-round excellent performance from the Hearts forward. This was him back to his early-season best as he gave the Aberdeen defence a torrid time with his skill and strength. He also linked up well with his team-mates throughout, as he and Jamie Walker formed a formidable-looking partnership. This week's star man.

FC - Kris Boyd (Kilmarnock)
Though his goals may have come from a free-kick and the penalty spot, Boyd looked at his dangerous, predatory best in the win over St Johnstone. Similar to Crawford for Hamilton, if he can sustain this form then Kilmarnock should feel confident about their chances of survival.
