Little also netted a double in last week's win over Queen's Park and is making the most of his chance to lead the line due to a number of injuries.
McCoist said: "He's the man in possession of the jersey and he's got four goals in the last couple of games.
"Wherever he plays on the park, Andy will make something happen.
"He's very powerful, he's strong, he's robust and he makes things bounce round about him.
"If you get him in the position to score a goal, he will score a goal there is no doubt about that.
"I thought the level of goal last week was great and it was even better today.
"Templeton's two strikes were absolutely fantastic goals and would have graced any level."
