Team of the Week

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

GK - Kelle Roos (Aberdeen)

Aberdeen picked up a huge three points with a 2-1 win over Ross County to move further away from the Premiership Play-Off zone. Roos made two impressive and vital saves at Pittodrie, denying Josh Reid in the first half then producing a great stop from Yan Dhanda's fierce strike in the second period.

DEF - James Tavernier (Rangers)

The Rangers captain became the highest-scoring defender in British football history with his volley against Hibs at Ibrox, putting his side on the path to victory in what eventually became a 3-1 triumph.

DEF - Cameron Carter-Vickers (Celtic)

The USA international again provided a much-needed calm head at the back for Celtic as the reigning champions secured a 3-0 away win against Livingston.

DEF - Ross Graham (Dundee United)

The cinch Championship title race is now back in the hands of Dundee United following Saturday's 2-0 victory over closest challengers Raith Rovers at Tannadice. Graham started in the United defence and put in an assured display.

DEF - Nick McAllister (Ayr United)

Ayr have been plagued by a number of injuries at left-back, but that won't be much of an issue if McAllister can repeat the type of performance he displayed in Friday's 2-1 victory over Airdrieonians. The result moved Scott Brown's men into the middle pack in the cinch Championship.

MID - Jack Bearne (Greenock Morton)

Greenock Morton returned to winning ways and remain firmly in the promotion play-off hunt after a 2-0 home win over Queen's Park. Bearne was the stand-out for the hosts, constantly being a threat to the visiting defence.

MID - Lyall Cameron (Dundee)

The youngster took advantage of St. Johnstone's goalkeeper rushing off his line to score with a terrific effort before taking hold of the game in the closing stages as Dundee edged out the Perth Saints 2-1 at McDiarmid Park. The score also pushed the Dee back into the top 6 in the cinch Premiership.

MID - Peter Pawlett (Peterhead)

A hat-trick from the former Aberdeen favourite, including two from the penalty spot, helped the Blue Toon sweep aside 10th-place Clyde with a 4-1 win at Balmoor. The result kept Stenhousemuir from being crowned fourth-tier champions for at least another week. Pawlett is this week's Star Man.

MID - Ethan Ross (Falkirk)

Falkirk showed exactly why they are cinch League 1 champions on Saturday, reacting to news of their title-triumph following Hamilton Accies' 0-0 draw with Queen of the South by thumping seven (S-E-V-E-N) goals past Montrose in the evening game. Ross got a goal and an assist in the hammering.

FWD - Adama Sidibeh (St Johnstone)

While his goal may not have contributed to any points, Sidibeh's incredible overhead kick in St. Johnstone's 2-1 loss to Dundee will stick in the memories of all who witnessed it. Having arrived in the January window, Sidibeh led the line terrifically well for Saints, stretching the Dundee defence, winning headers and linking play, as well as his spectacular goal.

FWD - Marley Watkins (Kilmarnock)

A terrific goal and all-round great performance from Watkins helped Kilmarnock fight back from a goal down to take a point from their trip to Hearts on Saturday. The result kept the Ayrshire side two points ahead of St Mirren in fourth and secured their spot in the top six.
