Rangers loanee Ryan Hardie has been picked as star man in SPFL Team of the Week after his hat-trick and all-round superb performance for Raith Rovers against St Mirren.
Craig Fowler of the Terrace Scottish Football Podcast has picked the following players as his top XI.
GK - Marc McCallum (Livingston)
Livingston climbed closer to safety with a vital 2-0 win over Dumbarton. The Lions now sit a point behind the Sons, thanks to a strong performance from their custodian. McCallum was called into making a few smart saves after his defenders played their way into trouble.
DC - Darren McGregor (Hibernian)
The centre-back stood up to the challenge of Miles Storey terrifically in Sunday's Scottish Cup tie. The ICT forward looked threatening early in the match, but McGregor was there at every turn to foil his attempts and, as a result, the longer time went on, the less Storey summoned the energy to impact proceedings.
DC - Rob Kiernan (Rangers)
Dundee boast three of the top attacking players in the country in Gary Harkins, Kane Hemmings and Greg Stewart, and yet the trio were kept quiet by a stellar Rangers defence. The top performer from the unit was Kiernan, who has grown into a colossus for the Ibrox club at the back.
DC - John Souttar (Heart of Midlothian)
At a fee rumoured to be around £175,000, Souttar looks to be an absolute steal for the Tynecastle club. They've yet to concede a goal when he starts a match and racked up their third consecutive clean sheet and victory on Saturday.
MR - Michael Paton (Dunfermline Athletic)
Paton scored one and set up another in a tremendous individual performance, amid a fine team showing, in Dunfermline's 5-0 victory over Stenhousemuir. The former Queen of the South winger has sometimes been overshadowed by the play of Joe Cardle on the opposite wing, but he's having a great season himself to help the Pars get to within touching distance of promotion back to the second tier.
MC - Scott Burns (Stirling Albion)
The central midfielder impressed in his first start of the season as Stirling recorded a 1-0 victory over Arbroath, who parted ways with manager Todd Lumsden the following day. Burns was busy in the centre and did his chances of earning another start when Stirling travel to second-place Elgin tonight no harm at all.
MC - Blair Alston (Falkirk)
Two assists from the midfielder during Falkirk's comfortable 2-0 victory over Alloa at the Falkirk Stadium. The youngster has really come into his own this season and has kept his performances at a high standard.
ML - Jordan Thompson (Airdrieonians)
The on-loan Rangers midfielder netted a 30-yard stunner to set Airdrie on their way to victory over Cowdenbeath. He would also notch an assist in a win that was overshadowed by manager Eddie Wolecki Black suffering a stroke at half-time and being taken to hospital. Thankfully, the Diamonds boss is set to make a full recovery.
FC - Kenny Miller (Rangers)
The veteran striker produced one of his best performances of the season to help Rangers dismantle Dundee. His movement, energy and work rate were all aspects of his play that Dundee's back-line couldn't deal with as the Ibrox side stormed into the semi-finals.
FC - Henri Anier (Dundee United)
A player long expected to exit Tannadice may yet have a huge part to play in their bid to avoid relegation. He's certainly a huge reason they are in the last four of the cup, producing a pair of smart, close-range finishes to help 10-man United upset Ross County in Dingwall.
FC - Ryan Hardie (Raith Rovers)
Save the best until last. Having struggled to score goals all season, Raith Rovers finally seem to have found the hitman required to fire them into the play-offs. Having scored as a substitute to earn victory last weekend, Hardie was granted a start against St Mirren and repaid his manager with a match-winning hat-trick. His third goal was the pick of the bunch as he jinked through the St Mirren back-line before finishing. He also set up strike-partner Mark Stewart for the other goal in the 4-3 victory. No doubt, he is this week's star man.
