Team of the Week

Craig Fowler selects his latest SPFL Team of the Week, with Annan Athletic's Tony Wallace the star man...

GK - Kyle Gourlay (Elgin City)
Peterhead defeated Elgin to move four points clear at the top of Ladbrokes League 2. However, we're going to reward a player on the losing team. Were it not for three cracking stops from the Elgin keeper, the scoreline would have been significantly more than a 1-0 win.

DC - Joe Worrall (Rangers)
The Rangers defender netted his side's equaliser as Steven Gerrard's men fought back from a goal down to force a cup replay with Aberdeen. He also performed solidly at the back.

DC - Jason Marr (Stirling Albion)
The centre-back dealt with just about everything Cowdenbeath threw his way as Stirling were able to overcome Darren Smith's first-half red card to win 2-1 at Central Park.

DC - Stuart Carswell (Dumbarton)
Carswell operated well in the defensive role as Dumbarton inflicted a first away defeat of the season on runaway League 1 leaders Arbroath, winning 2-0 at The Rock.

RM - Tony Wallace (Annan Athletic)
The winger netted twice as Annan kept up their impressive form, winning for the fourth straight game and stretching their lead in the final play-off spot to 10 points. Wallace operated on the left of midfield but, with an abundance of options in that area, we've switched him to the other side. He is this week’s star man.

MC - Graeme Shinnie (Aberdeen)
The Aberdeen skipper was excellent, particularly in the first half, as the home side came close to knocking Rangers out of the Scottish Cup at Pittodrie. His energy and tenaciousness was influential in the middle of the park.

MC - Scott Brown (Celtic)
Brown not only controlled the midfield as Celtic defeated Hibs to advance to the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup, he also netted a rasping second goal to assure his side of victory.

MC - Chris McStay (Clyde)
The midfielder impressed even before Clyde went down to 10 men in their match with Edinburgh City, but it was once Tom Lang was sent off that he really came alive; undoubtedly the best player on the park after that point as Clyde moved above Edinburgh into second place with the 1-0 win.

LM - Aaron Doran (Inverness CT)
Dangerous throughout, Doran capped off a strong showing with the winning goal in the 2-1 victory over Dundee United to send Inverness into the Scottish Cup semi-finals, where they'll meet the winner of the Hearts v Partick Thistle replay.

AM - Ryan Flynn (St Mirren)
There is life in St Mirren yet. Flynn once again impressed driving forward from the midfield area to support the attack, including netting an 89th-minute winner, as Saints moved to within a point of Dundee in 11th place.

FC - Dale Hilson (Forfar Athletic)
Hilson shone in Forfar's attack as the Loons defeated East Fife 3-0 to move above Raith Rovers and into second place in the Ladbrokes League 1 table. In addition to his hold-up and link play, he netted his side's opener at Station Park.
