Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Ross County striker Billy Mckay the star man after his hat-trick against Dundee United at Tannadice.

GK - David McGurn (Cowdenbeath)
A rare selection for a player on a losing team, but had it not been for the veteran goalkeeper then Cowdenbeath would surely have been downed by at least four goals away to Edinburgh City, instead of the 1-0 defeat they suffered.

RB - Efe Ambrose (Hibernian)
And the world's narrowest defensive four begins! Ambrose was excellent at centre-back for Hibs in their 1-0 victory over St Mirren but we've shoehorned him in at right-back due to the plethora of options from the central defensive corps in Scottish football this past weekend.

DC - Jimmy Dunne (Heart of Midlothian)
Dunne netted what would prove to be the eventual winner in Hearts’ 2-1 victory over St Johnstone and was often there as the last line of defence when the visitors threatened the Premiership leaders.

DC - Craig Halkett (Livingston)
The centre-back was imperious on Sunday as Livingston deservedly defeated Rangers 1-0 at the Tony Macaroni Arena. The West Lothian club continue to defy expectations, sitting in third place after seven games in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

LB - Daryll Meggatt (East Fife)
The centre-back - who has experience at left-back (promise!) - impressed during East Fife's 2-0 home win over Stenhousemuir. The Methil side have enjoyed a terrific turnaround in recent weeks - after registering just one point from their first four games, they've managed to win their next four and now sit in third place in League 1.

MC - Alan Power (Kilmarnock)
The midfielder didn't put a foot wrong as Kilmarnock came back from a goal down to defeat Motherwell 3-1 at Rugby Park on Saturday.

MC - Regan Hendry (Raith Rovers)
The youngster, on loan from Celtic, sparkled in the centre of the park as Raith Rovers got off to a flying start in John McGlynn's second spell as manager. The Kirkcaldy side thumped Dumbarton 5-1 at The Rock and remain on the tails of Arbroath at the top.

MC - Lewis Spence (Dundee)
Dundee finally picked up a win in the Ladbrokes Premiership with a 2-0 victory away to Hamilton Accies. Spence shone in the midfield area, where his use of the ball was vital to the away side.

FC - Billy Mckay (Ross County)
This week's star man. Mckay came back to haunt his old club as he netted a hat-trick in Ross County's 5-1 victory at Dundee United, a result which saw the end of Csaba Laszlo's time in charge of the Tannadice club.

FC - Zak Rudden (Falkirk)
The on-loan Rangers youngster netted twice as Falkirk found that elusive victory with a 2-0 triumph over Alloa Athletic at the Indodrill Stadium. Ray McKinnon's men controlled much of the match after a poor start and will be hoping they can now kick on from here.

FC - Lawrence Shankland (Ayr United)
Another week, another excellent showing from Shankland. He netted twice to take his tally for the season to 17 goals as Ayr United thumped Morton 5-1 at Cappielow. The Honest Men remain top of the Championship, with a two-point lead over Ross County.
