East Fife Scottish League One

Team of the Week

Craig Fowler from A View From the Terrace names his Team of the Week, with East Fife midfielder Scott Agnew the star man

GK - Jak Alnwick (St Mirren)
The shot-stopper kept up his impressive 2020/21 season with a couple of big saves in St Mirren's 1-1 draw with Motherwell as the home side fought back from a goal down to claim a point in the Scottish Premiership.

DR - Nicky Devlin (Livingston)
Livingston won their sixth league game in succession on Sunday and were started on their journey to three points by a terrific through ball from Devlin which enabled Scott Robinson to score. Other than that, the former Ayr United man was excellent on the right side of defence in the 3-1 win over Ross County.

DC - Stephen Welsh (Celtic)
A depleted Celtic side came within seconds of grabbing all three points against Hibs on Monday night until a late Kevin Nisbet equaliser. That shouldn't take any shine off the performance of young Welsh, however, who was dominant at the back all game.

DC - Ryan Strachan (Cove Rangers)
The experienced defender won Cove a place in the next round of the Scottish Cup with a tremendous injury-time goal to defeat Alloa Athletic 3-2 at the Indodrill as the visitors twice fought back from a goal down.

DL - Liam Henderson (Edinburgh City)
City were able to pull off an upset over League 1 Airdrieonians with a 1-0 victory in Lanarkshire. Craig Thomson was very impressive on the right, but we've gone for Henderson who was solid as a rock in the centre of defence.

MR - Greg Kiltie (Kilmarnock)
Once again, the attacker was Kilmarnock's shining star, this time scoring twice as Alex Dyer's side defeated Hamilton Accies 2-0 at Rugby Park.

MC - Scott Agnew (East Fife)
This week's star man comes from the Scottish Cup and East Fife's 5-1 victory over Tranent Juniors at Bayview. The underdogs were put so ruthlessly to the sword thanks in large part to Agnew, who hit a hat-trick for Darren Young’s men.

MC - Murray MacKintosh (Forfar Athletic)
Put back into the middle of the park after a spell at right-back, MacKintosh impressed even if Forfar needed extra-time to see off the challenge of Linlithgow Rose, winning 4-1 in the end. He also had an excellent finish early in the match to tie it up at 1-1.

ML - Andy Stirling (Stranraer)
Two assists from the midfielder helped Stranraer to fight back from a 2-0 half-time deficit to defeat Kelty Hearts 3-2 at Stark’s Park and advance to the third round of the cup.

FC - Alfredo Morelos (Rangers)
The Colombian looked back to his best on Sunday as he fired two goals past Joe Lewis in the Aberdeen goal to keep Rangers' winning run going and extend their lead at the top of the Premiership table to 21 points.

FC - Connor Shields (Queen of the South)
There was no shock to be had at Hampden as Allan Johnston's side made fairly quick work of Queen's Park, winning 3-0 on Friday night. Shields was excellent throughout and made sure of Queens' passage into the next round with the game-sealing third.
