Betfred Cup

Team of the Week

Craig Fowler from A View From the Terrace names his Team of the Week, with Alloa Athletic striker Liam Buchanan the star man...

GK – Cammy Mackay (Inverness CT)
ICT were made to work hard for their 1-0 victory over East Fife, with keeper Mackay kept busy. The youngster responded to the challenge, however, keeping a clean sheet.

DR - Aaron McGowan (Kilmarnock)
It hasn't all been plain sailing for McGowan since his move to Rugby Park but he was given a chance in the 2-0 win over Dumbarton and excelled.

CB - Frankie Musonda (Raith Rovers)
Saturday was a tough shift for the Championship leaders in their Fife derby at Cowdenbeath but they earned a 1-0 win, thanks in part to Musonda's play at the back.

DL - Tommy Robson (Queen's Park)
Queen's Park were unfortunate to lose to Premiership opponents in St Mirren, going down 1-0 to a late Jonathan Obika goal. Robson impressed at left wing-back.

MR - Martin Boyle (Hibernian)
The Hibs attacker looked back to his best against Dundee, continually troubling the away defence with his pace and dribbling ability and notching two assists.

MC - Kyle Turner (Dunfermline Athletic)
A rare place for a substitute in this team, but it's deserving for the former Stranraer star whose arrival off the bench sparked Dunfermline into life as they came back from 2-0 down to defeat Clyde. He even provided the cross for the winning goal - which should maybe count as his goal as replays don't seem to suggest official match-winner Paul Watson got much on the ball!

MC - Jordan Tillson (Ross County)
The midfielder helped County control the match as the Staggies ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in their final Betfred Cup game against Stirling Albion in Dingwall.

MC - David Gold (Arbroath)
The Red Lichties have made it to the last 16 for the first time in 27 years thanks to their 3-0 triumph over Elgin City at Gayfield and midfielder Gold netted twice in the historic victory.

ML - Alan Forrest (Livingston)
Forrest was the star man for Livingston as they gave themselves a confidence booster going back into league duty with a 4-1 win over Airdrieonians. The ex-Ayr United winger netted twice.

FC - Stevie May (St Johnstone)
The forward continued his fine Betfred Cup form with a double in a 3-1 away win over Peterhead, taking his total to five goals in the competition thus far.

FC - Liam Buchanan (Alloa Athletic)
This week's star man comes from the Indodrill as Buchanan inspired a terrific second-half recovery for Peter Grant's men, who had been trailing 2-0 to Stenhousemuir. The experienced hitman struck his first on 64 minutes and completed his hat-trick 14 minutes later. Steven Hetherington added a fourth goal in injury time to complete the 4-2 win.
