SPL Team of the Week - March 28

GOALKEEPER

JAMIE MacDONALD (Hearts): It might seem strange that he should gain recognition after conceding four goals, but the replacement for the injured Janos Balogh produced a series of outstanding saves, including a double effort to deny Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller. He certainly wasn't to blame for his side's emphatic defeat.

DEFENDERS

DANNY WILSON (Rangers): This teenager is a very cool customer. Despite being sent off in last weekend's CIS Cup final at Hampden Park, Wilson returned to the ranks and opened the scoring for his side against Hearts. After that, he settled into the sort of assured defensive display that has earned him plaudits across Scotland.

ANDY WEBSTER (Dundee United): The skipper put in a massive shift for his team, helping them recover from the early dismissal of Paul Dixon and snuffing out the threat of Motherwell, as United maintained their aspirations of gaining a Europa League place next season with a 3-0 home victory.

ZANDER DIAMOND (Aberdeen): The Dons finally ended a lengthy winless sequence on Saturday with a 2-1 success over St Mirren and, just as he has done in recent weeks, Diamond sparkled amid the triumph, breaking the deadlock with a 35th-minute goal and then resisting stoutly as the visitors attempted to claw back the deficit.

MIDFIELDERS

STEVEN NAISMITH (Rangers): Nothing seems capable of derailing their SPL charge and, despite missing several players, Walter Smith had the luxury of calling upon Naismith against Hearts. He duly responded with a brace in the 4-1 trouncing at Tynecastle. These were the first times he had found the net since September, but they cemented Rangers' ascendancy in the championship race.

PRINCE BUABEN (Dundee United): The Ghanaian's performance was one of the pivotal factors in his side's emphatic victory over Motherwell and the Prince was imperious, both in scoring his club's second goal, on the stroke of half-time, or in starting the majestic move that saw Danny Swanson apply the coup de grace.

AIDEN McGEADY (Celtic): His performances might have tailed off since the New Year but, with Neil Lennon in charge for the first time, McGeady sparked merry havoc in the win over Kilmarnock, was instrumental in two of the goals and showed that, if he is on song, invariably his team are, too.

JAMES WESOLOWSKI (Hamilton): The Australian has helped his team ensure that they aren't dragged into a late-season relegation battle and his superb 43rd-minute goal against St Johnstone at New Douglas Park was enough to earn the hosts all three points. "You can't say that we are safe yet," Wesolowski said afterwards. Yet the fact is that Hamilton are now 11 points clear of the bottom club, Falkirk.

STRIKERS

ROBBIE KEANE (Celtic): Whatever ructions might be affecting the club, nobody can fault the attitude of the Tottenham man, who popped up with another couple of goals, amid the 3-1 stroll to victory over Kilmarnock. Quite apart from his strikes, Keane's leadership skills were impressive throughout the contest.

KENNY MILLER (Rangers): Kris Boyd has gone off the boil of late - a sign that he is preparing to depart Ibrox? - but his Scotland colleague just keeps rolling along, creating chances, working hard and reaping the dividends of his labours. He scored again at Tynecastle and was generally a thorn in their side.

ANTHONY STOKES (Hibs): John Hughes' men have struggled to maintain their consistency during the past couple of months, but there are that signs they may be rediscovering their mojo and the prolific Stokes grabbed his 19th goal of the season during the visitors' 3-1 win against Falkirk.

BAD WEEK

STEVEN PRESSLEY (Falkirk): When he was appointed as Eddie May's replacement, the former Hearts, Rangers and Celtic player bullishly stated that he would keep his club in the SPL. However, as the clock ticks down, it seems increasingly probable that Falkirk will be relegated, no matter how much pretty football they play.
