Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Celtic winger James Forrest the star man for his four-goal show against St Johnstone.

GK - Brett Long (East Fife)
The Fife continued their terrific recent run with a 4-0 victory away to Forfar Athletic. While it was a very comfortable afternoon for the most part, they were helped by a couple of vital early saves from their goalkeeper, including a terrific stop when the game was still in the balance.

DRC - Robbie Deas (Cowdenbeath)
The on-loan Celtic defender excelled as the 10-man Blue Brazil jumped up two places into seventh spot following a narrow 1-0 victory over Stirling Albion at Central Park.

DC - Gerry McLauchlan (Queen's Park)
The towering defender was in imperious form as the Spiders kept a clean sheet against Clyde's potent attack to end a run of three successive defeats with a 1-0 triumph at Hampden.

DLC - Ruaridh Donaldson (Stenhousemuir)
The versatile defender shone at Ochilview in a thrilling match between Brown Ferguson's men and Montrose. Mark McGuigan's injury-time winner lifted the home side off the bottom but we've gone for Donaldson, who made a number of vital blocks and interceptions in the 3-2 victory.

MR - James Forrest (Celtic)
This week's star man choice was an easy one. After all, it's not every week a midfielder nets four goals in one match, never mind one half! That occurred at McDiarmid Park on Sunday as Celtic tore apart their hosts, winning 6-0.

MC - Emerson Hyndman (Hibernian)
Speaking of 6-0 beatings, Hibs dished one out to Hamilton Accies at Easter Road on Saturday. Neil Lennon's side were able to completely dominate thanks to terrific performances from their central midfielders, Hyndman, Stevie Mallan and Mark Milligan. As the other two haven't been short of plaudits, we've gone for ex-Rangers loanee Hyndman, who was among the scorers.

MC - Malaury Martin (Dunfermline Athletic)
He barely got a look-in at Hearts but Dunfermline fans couldn't be happier with the impact Malaury Martin is making in a black and white shirt. Again this past weekend the Frenchman impressed, strolling through proceedings as the Pars 2-0 away to fierce rivals Falkirk.

ML - Max Lowe (Aberdeen)
Sam Cosgrove bagged himself a double, but we've selected Max Lowe as Aberdeen's star man from the 4-1 victory over St Mirren. The on-loan Derby County wing-back terrorised the Buddies all afternoon at Pittodrie.

FR - Andy Jackson (Brechin City)
A double from the experienced striker helped Brechin defeat Airdrieonians, bringing about the end of Stephen Findlay's time in charge of the Lanarkshire club. As for City, they moved into the play-off spots with the 3-1 triumph.

FC - Stephen Dobbie (Queen of the South)
Another week, another selection for the most prolific striker in Scottish football. Dobbie made it 24 goals from 15 games, and scored his fourth hat-trick of the campaign (a reminder: we're still in October) to salvage a point for Queens in their home match against Alloa. The hosts were 3-0 down inside half an hour but Dobbie produced his magic to save the day.

FL - Ryan Kent (Rangers)
The on-loan Liverpool winger sparkled as Rangers ended Hearts' unbeaten start to the season. Kent netted the first and was a thorn in the Hearts side as Steven Gerrard's men ran out 3-1 winners at Ibrox.
