Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd the star man for his second-half hat-trick at Dumbarton

GK - Lee Robinson (Dunfermline Athletic)
The former Queen of the South and Rangers keeper made a couple of cracking saves as Dunfermline pulled off a shock in the Betfred Cup by defeating Dundee 1-0 at Dens Park.
 
DC - Kyle Benedictus (Raith Rovers)
Rovers gave themselves a much-needed confidence boost after last week's 2-0 defeat to Cowdenbeath with a deserved 1-1 draw against Hearts. Benedictus helped repel many attacks as the Premiership side struggled to create chances throughout.
 
DC - Liam Gordon (St Johnstone)
The young defender was immense as St Johnstone moved on from their disappointing draw with East Fife to win away at Montrose. New signing Tony Watt nabbed the game's only goal.
 
DC - Thomas O'Brien (Arbroath)
O'Brien scored and helped his side keep a clean sheet in Arbroath's Group A victory over Elgin City. The 2-0 win keeps the Red Lichties in the hunt for qualification.
 
DM - Jamie Adams (Ayr United)
We've got him at defensive midfield but the veteran was actually positioned at centre-back as Ayr defeated Albion Rovers 2-0 to remain top of Group E alongside Partick Thistle. The makeshift defender strolled through proceedings.
 
MR - Josh Todd (Queen of the South)
Queens’ fans were impressed with Todd as their side roasted Edinburgh City away from home, racking up the goals in a 4-0 win. Todd got himself a goal and an assist and gave his marker a torrid time throughout.
 
MC - Michael Tidser (Morton)

Tidser was excellent in the centre of the park as Morton put points on the board at the third time of asking with a 2-0 home win over Stenhousemuir.
 
MC - Craig Sibbald (Livingston)

Sibbald showed his typical technical and playmaking skills, which enabled him to be one of the brighter aspects of Livingston's 1-0 win over Annan Athletic at Linlithgow.
 
ML - Jake Hastie (Alloa Athletic)
Alloa were able to heap further misery on Dundee United, leaving the Championship's promotion hopefuls with only two points following this draw. Hastie was a constant thorn in United's side as Jim Goodwin's second-tier new boys left Tannadice with two points following a penalty shoot-out win.
 
FC - Kris Boyd (Kilmarnock)

Top goalscorer in the Premiership last season, Boyd is looking to continue where he left off as he bagged a hat-trick, coming on as a substitute in the 4-2 victory over Dumbarton. For that he is this week's star man.
 
FC - Isaac Layne (Stranraer)

The striker harried Motherwell's defenders as Stranraer drew 1-1 and took the shoot-out bonus point following an excellent performance from the League 1 side at Stair Park. Layne even netted his side's goal in the 1-1 draw.
