Team of the Week

Craig Fowler from A View from the Terrace names his cinch SPFL XI after the weekend's games...

GK - Tommy McHale (Elgin City)

Elgin City secured a huge 2-0 victory over Bonnyrigg Rose to move off the foot of the cinch League 2 table in what was Barry Smith’s final game as manager.

The visitors were on top in the early stages but found McHale in inspired form as he provided the platform for his side to push forward and claim three points.

DEF - Ryan McGowan (St Johnstone)

St. Johnstone are another team on the up as they rose to tenth spot in the cinch Premiership after collecting seven points from the last nine available. Saints defeated Ross County 1-0 at McDiarmid Park with Ryan McGowan’s experience impressing as Craig Levein’s side kept a valuable clean sheet.

DEF - Rocky Bushiri (Hibs)

Hibernian picked up a home win over Kilmarnock as Josh Campbell’s goal proved enough to keep the points at Easter Road. Bushiri was dominant at the back and is building a good understanding with centre-half partner, Will Fish.

DEF - Tom Lang (Falkirk)

Falkirk were made to work to maintain their unbeaten start to the cinch League 1 season as they edged out Edinburgh City 2-1. Lang, who has been excellent all campaign, put on another strong show in the backline.

DEF - Cammy Ballantyne (Airdrieonians)

A little tweak in formation helped inspire Airdrieonians to get the better of Arbroath 2-0 in Lanarkshire. Ballantyne was excellent at left wing-back, continuing driving forward and doing a solid defensive job for his team.

MID - Ross McCausland (Rangers)

The youngster is celebrating a call up to the Northern Ireland squad and he has also earned a place in Team of the Week after being a constant danger as Rangers ran out 2-0 winners at the Tony Macaroni Arena on Sunday.

MID - Beni Baningime (Hearts)

After recovering from a lengthy injury lay-off, Baningime appeared back to his best as the Jambos defeated Motherwell 2-1 at Fir Park. A through ball from Baningime played in Lawrence Shankland for the second goal in the striker’s Premiership brace.

MID - David Wotherspoon (Inverness CT)

The St. Johnstone legend is making the most of his spell in the Highlands with another Team of the Week place. Canadian international Wotherspoon earned the Man of the Match prize after scoring and having a hand in another as Duncan Ferguson maintained his unbeaten record as Inverness boss in the 3-1 win over Ayr United.

MID - Luis Palma (Celtic)

A goal and three assists for the summer signing helped Celtic hit Aberdeen for six at Celtic Park on Sunday afternoon. The Honduran is proving to be a key figure in Brendan Rodgers' Premiership-leading side.

FWD - Zak Rudden (Dundee)

Dundee produced one of the most eye-catching results of the weekend, defeating third-place St Mirren 4-0 at Dens Park. Both of the home attackers were excellent, with Amadou Bakayoko grabbing a double, but we've opted for Rudden, whose non-stop running continually unnerved the Buddies' back-line.

FWD - Kevin O’Hara (Hamilton Accies)

Accies kept the pressure on at the top of cinch League 1 with a comprehensive 5-0 home victory over Stirling Albion. O’Hara was the hat-trick hero for John Rankin’s team and he’s earned this week’s Star Man prize for his exploits too.
