Leagues Tipped:

After delivering a winning selection on Thursday night, SlipsTips shares his favourite fancy from Dumbarton and Edinburgh City's Scottish League One semi-final playoff second leg on Saturday.

Dumbarton vs Edinburgh City (Saturday, 15:00)

With one foot already firmly in the final of the Scottish League One promotion playoffs, Edinburgh City make the trip to Dumbarton for the second leg of their semi-final tie on Saturday.

Alan Maybury's men claimed a dominant 4-1 win in the first leg at Ainslie Park on Tuesday night and are now on the verge of setting up a two-legged final with either Annan or Forfar.

As for Stevie Farrell's side, it would be fair to say they have a mountain to climb if they are to avoid dropping into the fourth tier of Scottish football.

The Sons are short as 3/4 with most firms to win inside 90 minutes this weekend but I've identified a more appealing alternative whereby I'm happy to follow a familiar theme.

Dipping into the team corners market, we can get a rather nice looking price of 10/11 with Sky Bet on the hosts hitting six or more corners on Saturday.

Attempting to overturn a three-goal deficit here will be an extremely tall order so Stevie Farrell's side simply need to go all-out attack if they are to stand any chance of making the final.

Despite their well-documented struggles during the regular season, Dumbarton have been fairly reliable corner performers, with their matches generating a league-high 10.94 corners per-game, with the tier three team averaging 5.39 flag kicks when playing on home turf.

Edinburgh City, on the other hand, averaged a league-low 3.22 corners per 90 minutes in League Two this term and it's also worth pointing out that the visitors corners conceded per-game tally of 5.44 was the highest figure in the division.

What's more, despite crashing to a crushing 4-1 defeat in the first leg, Dumbarton still managed to deliver no fewer than seven corner kicks against the Citizens.

With all that in mind, I'm more than happy to side with 6+ Dumbarton corners on Saturday at 10/11 (Sky Bet) on an afternoon where the hosts will have to go hell for leather if they are to preserve their Scottish League One status.
