Team of the Week

Craig Fowler from A View From the Terrace names his Team of the Week, with St Johnstone goalkeeper Zander Clark the star man

GK - Zander Clark (St Johnstone)
Not only did he make a few crucial saves during the 120 minutes at Ibrox, not only did he save two penalties in the shoot-out to put Saints into the Scottish Cup semi-finals, he even managed to provide an incredible contribution to the attack with a late header turned home by Chris Kane which saved his side from elimination. There has not been a more deserving star man winner this season!

DR - Cammy Kerr (Dundee)
The boyhood Dee was at his best on Saturday, getting up and down the flank and helping his side defeat Raith Rovers 2-1, keeping hopes alive for James McPake's men to finish second in the Championship.

DC - Ryan Porteous (Hibernian)
He netted the winning penalty in Hibs' Scottish Cup quarter-final triumph over Motherwell, but a more important contribution was his last-ditch tackle on Chris Long in the first-half of extra-time when the striker looked certain to put the visitors ahead. This was one highlight in a strong performance from the centre-back.

DC - Sam Roscoe (Ayr United)
The 0-0 draw with Queen of the South wasn't much to write home about but Roscoe impressed in the heart of defence as Ayr picked up a vital point in their relegation battle.

DL - Miller Fenton (East Fife)
The Dunfermline loanee was an early substitute after Pat Slattery's injury and did himself no harm in staking a claim for a starting spot in the remaining games. Charging forward and linking well with Danny Swanson, he helped East Fife beat Dumbarton 2-1 in Methil.

MRC - Gary Mackay-Steven (Heart of Midlothian)
The former Celtic, Dundee United and Aberdeen winger was in sparkling form on Saturday, scoring twice and being a real menace as the Championship winners saw off Inverness CT 3-0.

MC - Shea Gordon (Partick Thistle)
Thistle moved closer to the League 1 title with a 1-0 victory over Airdrieonians which, coupled with Falkirk and Cove Rangers drawing 2-2, moved the Jags four points clear with three games remaining. Gutsy, defensive play, typified by Gordon in the middle of the park, helped see them over the line.

MLC - Hamish Ritchie (Peterhead)
An outstanding performance from the on-loan winger, who bagged two goals, helped Peterhead to defeat Clyde 3-0 in League 1. The result all but ended any worry of the Blue Toon finishing in ninth place.

FRC - Marc McNulty (Dundee United)
United easily beat Aberdeen on Sunday, winning 3-0 at Pittodrie and booking a semi-final meeting with Hibs in the Scottish Cup. The Tannadice side will be hoping McNulty can replicate this sort of performance against his former club as he netted twice in a terrific display.

FC - Matty Yates (Stranraer)
A classy showing from the striker, who bagged the only goal of the game on Friday night. That ended Queen's Park's hopes for an undefeated season in League 2 and gave the Blues a five-point cushion over Elgin City for the final play-off spot ahead of their meeting this evening.

FLC - Craig Wighton (Dunfermline Athletic)
Wighton netted twice in a 4-3 home victory over Arbroath that secured Dunfermline's spot in the Championship play-offs. The result, coupled with Hearts' win, means Inverness CT sit four points behind the Pars with just one game remaining.
