Congratulation to Rovers’ striker Ross Stewart who made the SPFL team of the week.
Craig Fowler picks his SPFL Team of the Week with Livi striker Danny Mullen singled out for special praise after bagging a double against Airdrieonians. He is this week’s star man!
GK – Sean Brennan (Berwick Rangers)
The Wee Rangers stopper was already in contention for a place in the side after he made two great stops in the first half of his side’s 3-2 at league leaders Forfar. What secures him the spot ahead of equally deserving contenders Sean Murdoch (Dunfermline) and Allan Fleming (Montrose) is his match-winning penalty save. Brennan repelled David Cox’s spot-kick deep into stoppage time to preserve the victory.
DR – Andy Geggan (Dunfermline)
Solid performance from the midfielder who continues to grow in confidence in his new role of right-back. In truth, the entire back four and goalkeeper, as already mentioned, could have found themselves included after the 1-0 win, which saw the Pars wreck Morton’s hopes of going the entire season undefeated.
DC – Daryll Meggat (Ayr United)
The Honest Men picked up a crucial victory this past weekend, bettering Dumbarton by a 2-1 scoreline that moved them level with the visitors and four points clear of bottom place St Mirren. Meggat was a rock at the heart of the defence as goals from Farid El Alagui and Robbie Crawford secured the win.
DC – Michael Bolochoweckyj (Montrose)
Forfar stay on top of the League Two table despite stretching their winless streak to seven games thanks to a surprise 1-0 victory by Montrose at the home of rivals Arbroath. The second place side were frustrated in their attempts to break down the visitors, with Bolochoweckyj in typically robust form.
DL – Lewis Stevenson (Hibernian)
The long-time club servant put in his usual energetic performance down the left-hand side as Hibernian secured a big victory over Falkirk that all but wraps up the Championship title for Neil Lennon’s men.
DM – Marvin Bartley (Hibernian)
We’ve said it before, when it’s a tough, high tempo game against a dangerous opponent, there are few players you want in your side more than Marvin Bartley. The midfielder was once again a colossus in the centre as Hibs defeated Falkirk thanks to a late James Keatings’ goal.
MR – Darren Smith (Stirling Albion)
The midfielder netted twice as Stirling Albion came back to defeat Clyde 3-2 in a thrilling encounter at Broadwood. Having started on the wing, his performances really picked up in the second half when he took up a spot in the middle, notching a double to help continue Stirling’s fine recent run.
ML – Dougie Gair (Edinburgh City)
Two goals from the left-footed midfielder who continually drifted in from the flank to devastating effect against Elgin City. Gair netted the opener and then scored the second from the penalty spot as Edinburgh took a massive step towards survival with the 3-0 win.
AM – Anthony Andreu (Dundee United)
The Frenchman was Dundee United’s star as the Tangerines lifted the Irn-Bru Cup, beating St Mirren 2-1 at Fir Park. In addition to an excellent opening goal, where the midfielder smacked a first-time volley into the far corner from 20 yards, he acted as the fulcrum for United’s passing play.
FC – Ross Stewart (Albion Rovers)
Two goals for the towering striker who continues to impress for the Cliftonhill club, as Darren Young’s side got a much-needed victory over Stenhousemuir. Stewart’s excellent movement allowed him to net the first two goals in the 3-0 win, which moved Rovers five points clear of their hosts in the relegation battle.
FC – Danny Mullen (Livingston)
A tremendous performance from the striker who notched two goals and led from the front as Livingston dispatched Airdrieonians by a 4-2 scoreline that, frankly, flattered the visitors. Livingston jumped 11 points clear at the top and are now almost certain to lift the League One trophy. Mullen, for his display, is this week’s star man.
