LONGSHOT lover Gerry Taylor (@thefurlongpole) picks out a few big prices to cheer on this weekend.
Livingston vs Celtic | Sunday 6th March 2022, 12:00 | Sky Sports
Livingston have already given Celtic problems this season, and are unbeaten against Ange Postecoglou’s men – with a win at the Tony Macaroni and a draw at Parkhead.
The Lions have been a bogey side for the Hoops for a few years now, especially in West Lothian.
If this game on Sunday proves to be another tricky one for the Celts , then I can see another high corners total for the visitors as they push forward.
They earned 10 flag-kicks earlier in the season at this venue, and another double-figure corner haul for a corner-heavy side isn’t that fanciful a selection.
Celtic 10+ Corners (4/1 SkyBet)
Clyde vs Falkirk | Saturday 5th March 2022, 15:00
Falkirk have been impressive for corner kicks for most of the season.
The Bairns' previous three clashes with the Bully Wee have produced the following corner counts:
- Falkirk 8 Clyde 2
- Clyde 4 Falkirk 8
- Falkirk 6 Clyde 1
With the hosts conceding an average of 6.85 corners – an 8 corner total once again for Falkirk shouldn’t be out of reach, especially with the recent addition of Leigh Griffiths to pep up their attack.
Falkirk 8+ Corners (11/4 SkyBet)
Montrose vs East Fife | Saturday 5th March 2022, 15:00
The hosts are another League One side who have impressed for corners.
Stuart Petrie’s men have won the corner count easily, in all three of their clashes against the Methil side:
- East Fife 1 Montrose 10
- Montrose 10 East Fife 4
- East Fife 5 Montrose 6
Hence a third 10-corner haul in a row for the Links Park outfit, could be quite achievable again, against the Fifers.
Montrose 10+ Corners (6/1 SkyBet)
