Team of the Week

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

GK - Harry Stone (Queen of the South)

Liam Kelly? Kelle Roos? Both had excellent games to help their respective teams get 1-1 draws against each half of the Old Firm, but the best goalkeeping performance belonged to the Hearts loanee in Queen of the South's penalty shoot-out triumph over Dundee United in the Scottish Cup. Stone made a series of crucial saves during the match and is this week's star man.

DEF - Michael Doyle (Cove Rangers)

A goal and an impressive performance from the right-back helped Cove Rangers to come out on top in an all cinch League 1 encounter in the Scottish Cup with a 2-0 win over Stirling Albion.

DEF - Bevis Mugabi (Motherwell)

Mugabi put in a big display for the Steelmen as Stuart Kettlewell's side earned a 1-1 draw at Celtic Park. The Uganda international did concede a penalty but was helped out by goalkeeper Liam Kelly's save and it can't take the shine off a committed performance from the centre back.

DEF - Andy Munro (Forfar Athletic)

Forfar Athletic avoided any cup banana skin by going to Tranent and emerging with a 1-0 win to move into the next round. Munro's leadership and imposing presence was a big bonus at the back.

DEF - Alex Cochrane (Hearts)

Cochrane started off tremendously in Hearts' 1-0 victory over St Johnstone and played a crucial role in the game's winning goal as the capital club kept hot on the heels of third-place St. Mirren in the cinch Premiership.

MID - Jair Tavares (Hibs)

Tavares was the stand-out for Nick Montgomery's men as he started and finished the move which led to the opening goal in Hibernian's 2-1 win over Dundee. The winger looks like a player reborn as the Easter Road side leapfrogged Saturday's opponents in the cinch Premiership table.

MID - Dylan Easton (Raith Rovers)

Bragging rights in the Kingdom fully belong to the men from Kirkcaldy as they made it three wins from three against local rivals Dunfermline Athletic this season with a 3-0 victory in the Scottish Cup. Easton was incredible in the centre of the park.

MID - Aidan Fitzpatrick (Partick Thistle)

Two goals from the in-form wide-man helped Thistle to overcome fellow Championship side Queen's Park to reach the next stage of the Scottish Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win at Firhill.

FWD - Cammy Russell (Spartans)

A man of the match display from Russell as he helped The Spartans pull off a cup shock as they defeated cinch Championship side Arbroath to set up a tie with Heart of Midlothian. Russell's runs caused havoc for the Red Lichties during a 2-1 win for Dougie Samuel's team

FWD - Michael Ruth (Dumbarton)

The most spectacular match of the weekend took place at Galabank as Dumbarton upset their League One hosts with a thrilling 5-4 triumph over Annan Athletic after extra time. Ruth scored one and set up another for the victorious visitors.

FWD - Aidan Smith (Annan Athletic)

It wasn't to be for Annan as they came out on the wrong side of a thrilling contest but Smith deserves his spot in the team after scoring and setting up another in this nine-goal classic.
