Team of the Week

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

GK - Darren Jamieson (Stenhousemuir)

Stenhousemuir’s backline has been the foundation of their cinch League 2 title bid this campaign and we’re showing some love to Warriors shot stopper Darren Jamieson. He made several smart saves as Stenny defeated Dumbarton 1-0 to move 15 points clear at the summit.

DEF - Matty Allan (Forfar Athletic)

A tough tackling and fine passing performance from Allan helped Forfar to a huge victory in cinch League 2 as they defeated Spartans 1-0 at Station Park. With seven points in their last three games, Forfar are now up to seventh, nine points clear of 10th spot.

DEF - Andy Considine (St Johnstone)

Speaking of big victories, St Johnstone were able to move five points above the relegation places and avoid slipping to 11th with a 1-0 win away at Ross County. It was a strong defensive performance from the visitors with Considine's experience and composure shining through.

DEF - Alex Gogic (St Mirren)

The Cypriot came back to haunt his former club at the weekend with an excellent display in defence and scoring the opening goal as St Mirren stunned Hibs with a 3-0 thumping at Easter Road in the cinch Premiership.

DEF - Jack MacKenzie (Aberdeen)

Even without a permanent manager in the dugout, Aberdeen were able to throw a spanner into Celtic's cinch Premiership title plans with a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie. Many home players impressive in an excellent second-half showing, but MacKenzie looked good throughout the whole 90 minutes.

MID - Todd Cantwell (Rangers)

The midfielder was head and shoulders above his Ibrox team-mates and got himself on the scoresheet as Philippe Clement's side brushed aside Livingston with a 3-0 win in Glasgow.

MID - Robbie Crawford (Greenock Morton)

Two Morton centre-backs kept clean sheets and each scored two goals in the 5-0 win at Dunfermline Athletic, but we're going with the consensus pick for Man of the Match as Crawford, along with strong displays from Iain Wilson and Alan Power, dominated the midfield area.

MC - Mark Gallagher (Elgin City)

Arguably Gallagher's best performance in an Elgin City shirt to date helped the Black and Whites to a crucial victory, edging out East Fife 1-0 to move nine points clear of the relegation play-off place.

FWD - Alfie Bavidge (Kelty Hearts)

This week's Star Man comes from cinch League 1 as Kelty Hearts secured their first win of 2024 with a 3-0 victory over Edinburgh City. Seventeen-year-old Bavidge, on loan from Aberdeen, grabbed all three goals for Michael Tidser's side.

FWD - Lawrence Shankland (Hearts)

Were it not for Bavidge's treble, the Scotland international would have been this week's Star Man. Shankland inspired a second-half fightback from the Jam Tarts in their 3-2 win at Dundee with an assist, a penalty won and scored, as well as a late winner. He now has 21 goal for the season, 16 of those coming in the league.

FWD - Theo Bair (Motherwell)

Bair has found the best form of his time in Scotland to date as he sprung the offside trap to net the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock. It is four goals in as many league games for the Canadian forward.
