Team of the Week

Craig Fowler from A View From the Terrace names his SPFL Team of the Week, with Hibernian hat-trick hero Martin Boyle the star man...

GK - Derek Gaston (Arbroath)
The cinch Championship title race currently sees five teams (yes, FIVE) separated by just two points. That's in large part thanks to the Red Lichties, sitting in fifth, who went to leaders Kilmarnock and won 1-0 at the weekend. Gaston made a series of vital saves to ensure a clean sheet and lay the foundation for Anton Dowds to score a late winner.

DEF - Ricki Lamie (Motherwell)
Not only did the centre-back score the all-important second goal in Motherwell's deserved 2-0 victory over Hearts on Saturday; he also made some vital interventions at the back, including stopping Josh Ginnelly after the attacker had been played through at 1-0.

DEF - Andy Munro (Forfar Athletic)
A goal and a clean sheet is enough to get Munro into this side as Forfar left it late before eventually seeing off Cowdenbeath 3-0 at Station Park on Saturday.

DEF - Lewis Mayo (Partick Thistle)
Mayo netted the only goal of the game and was an important member of the Thistle defence which also kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 victory over Hamilton Accies in the cinch Championship.

MID - Cammy Ballantyne (Montrose)
Another excellent performance, capped off with the winning goal, saw Ballantyne help his side to three points from a trip to Falkirk, who missed a penalty late on.

MID - Iain Vigurs (Cove Rangers)
Cove Rangers are the new leaders in cinch League 1 after knocking Airdrieonians off top spot with a 2-0 victory in Lanarkshire at the weekend. Vigurs was the tempo-setter in midfield, pulling the strings and playing an important role in helping Paul Hartley's men to victory.

MID - Nir Bitton (Celtic)
Starting at the base of midfield before moving into the defence during the second half, Bitton showed a lot of poise and purpose as Ange Postecoglou reached a major final at the first time of asking as Celtic boss as his side defeated St Johnstone 1-0.

MID - Ross Cunningham (Clyde)
It was the end of the road for Darren Young at the weekend after his East Fife side were defeated 3-1 by Clyde. Cunningham netted twice for the Bully Wee - a result which gives them a five-point cushion over Saturday's opponents at the bottom of League 1.

FWD - Martin Boyle (Hibernian) 
This week's star man. Jack Ross' side are in the final of the Premier Sports Cup thanks in large part to the heroics of Boyle, who fired in a first-half hat-trick in the 3-1 victory over Rangers at Hampden on Sunday afternoon.

FWD - Lewis McCann (Dunfermline Athletic)
Two victories in two for Dunfermline after announcing John Hughes as their new manager. Properly taking charge of his first game, Yogi's men won 3-0 against Ayr United with McCann bagging a double.

FWD - Billy Mckay (Inverness Caledonian Thistle)
Another forward, another brace. Mckay netted both goals on Friday night as Billy Dodds' men moved back to within a point of the summit in the cinch Championship with a 2-1 win at Queen of the South.
