Team of the Week

Craig Fowler from A View From the Terrace names his SPFL Team of the Week, with FC Edinburgh's Ryan Shanley the star man!

GK - Brian Schwake (Greenock Morton)
The goalkeeper made an outstanding save, as he has done several times this season, to keep the scores level before Morton went in front in the 2-1 victory at Cove Rangers, taking them to within a point of Ayr at the top of the cinch Championship.

DEF - Ayrton Sonkur (Albion Rovers)
It's five league games without defeat and two wins in succession for Albion Rovers, who now move into seventh spot in cinch League 2 after occupying bottom spot not so long ago. Sonkur was dominant at the back as they beat Stranraer 1-0 on Saturday.

DEF - Jordan McGregor (Stirling Albion)
The former Aberdeen centre-back excelled as the Binos defeated East Fife 3-1 – helped by two assists and a goal from right-back Aaron Dunsmore – to move to within three points of League 2 leaders Dumbarton.

DEF - Lee Ashcroft (Dundee)
It wasn't pretty for the most part but Dundee kept the momentum going with a 1-0 home win over bottom side Hamilton Accies to move to within one point of the Championship summit. Ben Williamson impressed in the centre of the park, but we've gone Ashcroft for leading the defensive effort in a key clean sheet.

MID - Aaron Comrie (Dunfermline Athletic)
Excelled in his defensive duties and drove forward to support as Dunfermline intensified their choke-hold on cinch League 1 with a 2-0 win at Peterhead which sends them seven points clear at the top.

MID - Kyle Turner (Partick Thistle)
A goal and two assists played a major role in Thistle finally getting back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over Arbroath which didn't tell the full story of a tough contest at Firhill.

MID - Brian Cameron (Elgin City)
Elgin moved into sole possession of third place in League 2 as they defeated Annan Athletic 3-1 at Galabank. Cameron impressed and netted twice for the visitors.

MID - Euan Deveney (Airdrieonians)
The youngster excelled at left-back as Airdrie made it four consecutive games undefeated in the third tier with a 1-0 home win over Kelty Hearts.

FWD - Simon Murray (Queen's Park)
Arguably the performance of the weekend came at Stark's Park as the Spiders netted five times against Raith Rovers. Both Murray and Dom Thomas bagged doubles but we've gone for Murray for the two assists he also provided in the 5-2 thumping.

FWD - Ruari Paton (Queen of the South)
Two goals from the attacker set the Doonhamers on the way to a superb 4-0 home victory over Montrose, a side who still sit three places ahead of them in the League 1 table. 

FWD - Ryan Shanley (Edinburgh)
Simon Murray was very lucky not to get the star man nomination, but we couldn't ignore the part Shanley played in what is surely going to be the greatest comeback in the SPFL this year. Edinburgh quickly found themselves in a 3-0 first-half hole at home to Alloa Athletic but refused to give up and, thanks in large part to Shanley's hat-trick, recorded a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Wasps.
