Chizzy is without doubt darts' form horse on both floor and stage and has demonstrated that his World Championship win over Phil Taylor was no flash in the pan as he looks to follow it up by reaching the UK Open final.

The St Helens star is seemingly continuing his blistering ProTour form and bringing it to the main stage; he will be full of confidence after coasting past the likes of Simon Whitlock and Raymond van Barneveld and he remains on course for a mouth-watering final showdown with Phil Taylor.

Standing in the way of that dream final is Robert Thornton, a player who until this afternoon had gone somewhat under the radar in this event.

He has put to rest a woeful 18 months which has seen him tumble down the rankings as a result of problems on and off the oche.

Board two had been his spiritual home until he faced Wes Newton earlier and The Thorn showed he is not to be taken lightly as he knocked out last year's runner-up.

Gary Anderson and Dennis Priestley have also felt the wrath of the former World Master this weekend and the 44-year-old continues to fly the flag for Scotland in darts' FA Cup. 

The duo have met four times in previous ranking competition and it is the Scot who boasts the better record with three wins since 2007.

Chisnall however stopped the rot in a ProTour event last year by earning a 6-3 victory and is well fancied to prevail from their most notable encounter this evening.

The bookmakers make Chisnall the inevitable 2/7 favourite based on current form, with Thornton priced at 13/5 for a shock victory with Bet365.

The match is the second of the two Semi-Finals and gets underway at 8.30pm GMT. It will be streamed live over the best of 19 legs from the Reebok Stadium, Bolton.
