Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his SPFL Team of the Week, with Arbroath defender Thomas O'Brien the star man...

GK - Seny Dieng (Dundee)
The Dundee goalkeeper made a vital double save at the end of his side's 2-1 victory over Livingston, which was a huge result for Jim McIntyre's men in their fight against relegation from the Ladbrokes Premiership.

DC - Joe Shaughnessy (St Johnstone)
Rangers slipped eight points behind rivals Celtic in the title race after being held 0-0 at home to St Johnstone. While Chris Kane impressed in leading the line, it was Shaughnessy at centre-back who was the stand-out player as Saints recorded a clean sheet at Ibrox.

DC - Sean Dillon (Montrose)
Once again the veteran impressed at the heart of the defence as Montrose saw off Forfar Athletic in Saturday's Angus derby. The Mo' moved to within three points of the play-offs thanks to the 2-0 win.

DC - Thomas O'Brien (Arbroath)
Another imperious performance from Arbroath as Dick Campbell's men went to the home of closest challengers Raith Rovers and left with a 1-0 win. O'Brien has been in tremendous form throughout the season and, with a 16-point lead for his side, he looks certain to be playing Championship football next term. He is this week's star man.

MR - Peter Pawlett (Dundee United)
The former Aberdeen favourite impressed on the wing for United as Robbie Neilson's men cut the gap at the top of the Ladbrokes Championship table with a 1-0 win at Queen of the South.

MC - David Turnbull (Motherwell)
Sure, his injury-time winner may have been a bit fortuitous but, even removing that goal, Turnbull was the stand-out player in Motherwell's victory over Hearts on Sunday. He's the glue which holds Stephen Robinson's new 4-3-3 system together.

MC - Joe Thomson (Dunfermline Athletic)
The midfielder impressed with his engine and his passing as Dunfermline earned a huge result against Inverness CT, easing some of the potential relegation fears with a 1-0 win in a very tight division.

MC - Brian Cameron (Elgin City)
It's an old favourite returning to Team of the Week, as Cameron netted twice in a thoroughly entertaining match at Borough Briggs as the hosts defeated Stirling Albion 3-2.

ML - Jonny Hayes (Celtic)
Celtic were able to make Rangers pay for their slip-up against St Johnstone on Saturday with a 1-0 win over Kilmarnock the following day. Though Scott Brown netted the decisive goal, via a deflection, it was stand-in left-back Jonny Hayes who most impressed.

AM - Dom Thomas (Dumbarton)
An excellent second half saw Dumbarton roll over Stranraer 3-0 at Stair Park, a result which not only moved Jim Duffy's side off the bottom but out of the relegation zone entirely. Thomas, playing on the left, was a man on fire in the second period, scoring and terrorising the home defence throughout.

FC - Aidan Smith (Annan Athletic)
Annan strengthened their position in the play-offs following Saturday's 4-2 win at Cowdenbeath as Smith notched his first goals since December 22 with a double in the victory.
