Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips has lined up a team corner double ahead of Saturday's English Championship play-off semi-final second legs.

Brentford vs Bournemouth (Saturday, 12:30)

Bournemouth hold a 1-0 aggregate lead over Brentford ahead of the Championship play-off semi-final second leg from the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday.

I've already penned a separate match preview on this showdown which can be found here.

However, I'm also going to factor this fixture into the first half of a double by backing the hosts to hit four or more corners on Saturday afternoon.

Thomas Frank's side have work to do and they will look to start on the front foot as they bid to get back into this tie.

The Bees were averaging five flag kicks per game at their West London base during the regular season and they clocked up five corners during Monday's semi-final first leg at the Vitality Stadium.

With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Brentford must score on Saturday if they are to salvage their promotion dream, I'm happy to side with four or more Bees corners as the first half of my double.

Swansea vs Barnsley (Saturday, 18:30)

Barnsley travel to Swansea in the second leg of their Championship play-off semi-final needing to overturn a 1-0 deficit.

Andre Ayew's sublime piece of individual brilliance separates the two sides ahead of Saturday night's return match in Wales.

Indeed, that win has boosted the Swans chances of returning to the big time, but Barnsley boss Valerien Ismael believes his team can turn this tie around.

The Tykes triumphed in seven of their final nine Championship road trips of the regular season and they will have to go for broke at some point on Saturday.

I'm therefore going to complete my 5/6 (Sky Bet) double by backing the Oakwell outfit to hit four or more corners at the Liberty Stadium.

Barnsley have racked up 4+ corners in 16 of their last 21 league games, while Steve Cooper's crew conceded four or more flag kicks in seven of their final nine home fixtures of the season.
