Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Queen of the South striker Stephen Dobbie the star man for his hat-trick against Falkirk.

GK - Max Currie (Stranraer)
Currie made some fine second-half saves to ensure Stranraer kept out Montrose in their 2-0 victory. Two early goals were enough for the Stair Park side to pick up their first league win of the campaign.

DR - Richard Foster (St Johnstone)
After missing the opener against Kilmarnock, Foster has impressed in each of St Johnstone's last three games and took further plaudits after helping Saints defeat Dundee 1-0 at McDiarmid Park.

DC - Dedryck Boyata (Celtic)
Whether the Belgian remains at Celtic Park past Friday's transfer deadline remains to be seen. However, there's little doubt he showed his class after returning to the starting XI for Sunday's visit of Hamilton Accies. He was the most accomplished defender and bagged the game's only goal.

DC - Alan Lithgow (Livingston)
Speaking of defenders returning to the starting XI, Lithgow found himself back in the line-up after Kenny Miller's exit and he didn't waste his chance. The defender scored one, assisted another and was a colossus at the back as Livingston defeated St Mirren 2-0 in Paisley.

DL - Borna Barisic (Rangers)
The Croatian full-back was superb, bombing up and down the wing, as Rangers drew 3-3 with Motherwell in a Fir Park thriller on Sunday afternoon.

MC - Alan Forrest (Ayr United)
Forrest netted twice as Ayr United thumped Dunfermline 4-1 at Somerset Park, moving Ian McCall's side top of the Championship, on goal difference from Morton.

MC - Gael Bigirimana (Motherwell)
Two assists for the diminutive midfielder and an excellent performance helped Motherwell earn their first league point of the campaign as Peter Hartley's late goal rescued a draw against Rangers.

MC - Michael Tidser (Morton)
Tidser is in the form of his life at the moment and again shone for Morton, this time in a 2-1 victory over previously top-of-the-table Ross County. The 28-year-old even managed to get himself on the scoresheet at Cappielow.

FC - Uche Ikpeazu (Heart of Midlothian)
The imposing striker netted the winning goal and had a starring role as Hearts defeated Kilmarnock 1-0 at Rugby Park. The home defence just had no answer to the summer signing from Cambridge United.

FC - Stephen Dobbie (Queen of the South)
This week’s star man. The striker scored yet another hat-trick for the Doonhamers – his sixth in the space of 12 months – as they thumped Falkirk 3-0 away from home. The result spelled the end for Bairns boss Paul Hartley, who left the club on Monday evening. 

FC - Liam Buchanan (Raith Rovers)
The most sensational finish to any game took place at the Penny Cars Stadium as Raith Rovers, down to 10 men and trailing Airdrie 3-1, sensationally came back to win 4-3 with three goals in the last few minutes. Buchanan and Kevin Nisbet were the goal heroes for Rovers.
