Danger Man

Ruari Paton: The 23 year old is joint top of the goalscoring chart in the Scottish Championship, grabbing three goals in his opening five league appearances, while also providing two assists for his teammates. Paton moved to the Spiders this past summer, following a two year stint at Queen of the South, where he would score 30+ goals in just under 100 appearances in all competitions, and finishing as the joint-top scorer in Scottish League One with 22 goals in the 2022-23 season. The Forward will likely be the biggest threat in today's SPFL Trust Trophy tie.
