Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Raith Rovers midfielder Grant Gillespie the star man...

GK - David Mitchell (Falkirk)
Arguably the result of the day occurred in the Ladbrokes Championship as relegation-threatened Falkirk went to title challengers Ayr United and won 1-0. They were able to secure the points thanks to some late goalkeeping heroics from Mitchell.

DC - Kerr Waddell (Morton)
A winning goal and a solid defensive performance from the on-loan Dundee defender helped Morton  grab a Friday night victory over Championship leaders Ross County at Cappielow.

DC - Darren Whyte (Forfar Athletic)
The young defender impressed throughout Forfar's 3-2 victory away to Dumbarton as the Loons kept hold of their place in the play-offs, with nearest challengers Airdrie and Montrose also winning.

DC - Tom Lang (Clyde)
Replacing Dylan Cogill shortly after the half-hour mark, Lang was excellent in defence as Clyde came back from 1-0 down with a late double to take all three points at Peterhead. The result, coupled with Edinburgh City dropping points again, puts the Bully Wee firmly in the title race.

MR - Bobby Linn (Arbroath)
There wasn't much to write home about in the Angus derby at Gayfield as Arbroath and Brechin played out a fairly uneventful 90 minutes. The undeniable stand-out was Linn, who impressed on both wings and provided the cross for Ryan McCord's winning goal. He also earned a penalty in stoppage time - only for McCord to smash it high over the bar!

MC - Grant Gillespie (Raith Rovers)
The former Hamilton Accies and Dundee United midfielder ran the show from the centre of the park as Raith Rovers swept aside Stenhousemuir with a convincing 5-1 victory at Stark's Park. He is this week's star man.

MC - Dominic Docherty (Stirling Albion)
Stirling Albion claimed the shock result of the day in League 2 with a 1-0 win at table-toppers Edinburgh City. Docherty was impressive in the centre of the park as he and his team-mates took advantage of the absence of influential City midfielder Andy Black.

ML - Josh Todd (Queen of the South)
The former Annan Athletic star put in another of his typically excellent showings to help his side earn three points from their trip to Inverness. Just like Clyde at Peterhead, it was achieved by a quick one-two punch late in the game to earn a 2-1 win.

FC - Alan Trouten (Alloa Athletic)
Trouten made it 14 goals for the season with a double at East End Park that helped erase a 2-0 deficit and give Alloa a huge morale-boosting point on a day when both of their relegation rivals - Partick Thistle, who drew at Dundee United, and Falkirk – also picked up impressive results.

FC - Leighton McIntosh (Airdrieonians)
The striker dominated his opposing markers as Airdrie went to East Fife and left with three points. McIntosh's goal, scored a minute before the break, would prove to be the winner.

FC - Tommy Muir (Annan Athletic)
The 21-year-old attacker ended a four-month goal drought in style with both strikes in his side's 2-0 triumph over 10-man Elgin City at Galabank.
