Kyle McAusland, Brechin City

Went the full 90 in the #6 shirt & won over the home faithful by poking home the team’s third goal in a 3-1 victory over Morton.  McAusland’s first touch was key on the goal, as he deftly gained control in a crowded Morton box before picking his spot on the shot.  He nearly added a second in extra time but was denied by the goal post.

Robbie Crawford, Morton

Had a couple of chances on goal in the same match, but failed to find the necessary finish.  Early on his shot was deflected out for a corner & then he launched a long range effort over the crossbar.  In a moment of Rangers-on-Rangers crime, Crawford was fouled in the 18th minute by Kyle McAusland.  Crawford was also booked for a harsh challenge on Alan Trouten.  Managed back-to-back shots on goal towards the end of the match with neither getting behind the goalie.

Craig Halkett, Clyde FC

Moments after nearly scoring off of a header, Halkett was stretchered off the pitch after injuring himself going in for a tackle.  He was then taken to a local hospital for further tests on the injury.  Clyde defeated Turriff United 3-0 in the second round of the Scottish Cup.

Barrie McKay, Raith Rovers

McKay nearly opened up the scoring against Hibs, as he dragged the ball into a more central position & fired a strike directly into the cross bar.  It would have been a spectacular follow up to his Man of the Match performance last week.  McKay was subbed out a few minutes after Raith scored the equalizing goal in a 1-1 draw.

Luca Gasparotto, Airdrieonians

Went the full 90 in Airdrie’s 2-1 loss to Forfar Athletic.

Calum Gallagher, Cowdenbeath

Went the distance in a 0-0 draw with Dumbarton.  Gallagher only managed one shot on goal, a long range effort that forced the keeper into a save.

Danny Stoney, Stranraer

Came on as a substitute in the 86th minute in a 1-1 draw with Stenhousemuir.

Tom Walsh, Stenhousemuir

Yet again, Walsh did not make the first team squad.  Injuries have prevented Walsh from making his mark on this current loan spell.
