There was plenty of Premiership action to cast eyes upon over the weekend as matchday 12 took place.
With standout performers as usual, here’s our Team of the Week picks.
Dundee United drew 0-0 for the second consecutive match as their struggles in front of goal continued. But they are still picking up points thanks to their Swiss keeper, who made vital contributions to take a point for United against St Johnstone.
On the opposite side of the pitch during St Johnstone’s stalemate with Dundee United, McCart was impressive. He arguably turned in his best Saints performance yet as Callum Davidson’s side kept a clean sheet.
Hibs’ stalwart centre-back has been remarkable this term and again impressed in a 1-0 win over Kilmarnock. He was key in Hibs keeping their sixth clean sheet of the term.
Motherwell skipper Gallagher continued his impressive form on a return to the domestic scene. His side won 4-0 against Ross County, the captain keeping a clean sheet and providing an assist.
Game of the weekend had Aberdeen contest a 3-3 draw with Celtic. He may not have started, but Wright’s introduction from the bench sparked this game into life, playing a key role in the second Dons goal.
Wright’s Dons teammate didn’t do too badly either. Ferguson scored twice from the spot against Celtic, making him the league’s joint-top scorer in the process.
Stephen Robinson utilised the midfielder in central defence on Saturday but midfield is where we are fitting him in. O’Hara did well in his new position, the Well boss labeling him as Saturday’s unsung claret and amber hero.
Something has clicked for Newell at Hibs this season. Playing in his natural central midfield position has worked wonders, the playmaker again dazzling with great technique.
Another Well man shoehorned into our XI, we are slotting McGinley in at left-wing-back. Returning for only his second Premiership display of the term, the defender provided an assist and resolute defending against County.
He may not have scored on Saturday but the Welshman was every bit as effective. Hibs manager Ross called Doidge’s performance ‘excellent’ after a tireless shift in Ayrshire.
A good shout for performer of the weekend, Watt had a hand in all four Motherwell goals on Saturday. One of those contributions was a first league goal of the campaign, showing how effective he can be for Robinson overall.
