Team Of The Week – SPFL U20s: 17-21 April 2017

TOTW: 17th-21st April

Mark Foden GK, Sam Morrison, Matthew Hall, David Keiller-Dunn (Ross County)

Ross County were 2-0 winners v 2nd placed Hibs in the biggest match of the season so far in the Development League. Ross impressivly soaked up much of the pressure for long periods whilst being clinical at the other end when they needed to be. This was also the 4th clean sheet on the spin for the Staggies. This one is particularly impressive considering their opposition of Ollie Shaw (23 goals in 21 starts) and the inform Fraser Murray.

Foden has his spot back in out TOTW back between the jumpers along side key defenders Sam Morrison and Matthew Hall. David Keiller-Dunn also makes the team as goalscorer of Ross’s 2nd goal. Top team performance.

Adam Livingstone (Motherwell)

Motherwell were 3-2 winners v Falkirk. Adam’s crossing and dead ball ability has been central to the Steelmen’s success at this level this season. An excellent corner and cross found Mackin’s head for two of Motherwell’s goals. Highlights of that game can be found here:

Atakayi, Ross Lyon (Rangers)

Rangers bounced back well after last weeks disappointing 4-0 derby loss with a 5-0 win v Dundee. Atakayi and Lyon were the stand out performers here. Lyon, with one assist from a corner, also got on the scoresheet himself. As did Atakayi, but it was Atakayi’s pace that was the main a threat throughout.

Scott McLean (Kilmarnock)

You feel McLean’s wand of a left peg will be a key for Killy over the coming years. He smacked in a free-kick in this humdinger of a game at the bottom of the table. Ended St. Johnstone 3-4 Kilmarnock, a rare away win for Killie.

Calvin Miller (Celtic) 

In a game Celtic needed to secure all 3 points to stay in the title race Calvin bagged a hat-trick to make it 5 goals in the last 4.

Dylan Mackin (Motherwell) 

Dylan netted two headers in the 3-2 win this week v Falkirk. The first was from an excellent in-swinging Livingstone corner as Mackin showed intelligence and awareness beyond his years, wriggled free 6-yards out and glanced the ball home. For second he showed excellent bravery and determination as he beat the outrushing Lewis McMinn (GK) to the ball and found the back of the net before being clattered. Highlights:

Lewis Moore (Hearts)

For a player to turn up and leave with the match ball after not seeing a great deal of minutes in the team this season, has to make our TOTW. Hearts were 3-1 winners over Inverness and Lewis completes this weeks line up.
