Phil Taylor steps up his bid to become world champion for a 16th time when he takes on PDC newcomer Dave Chisnall on Tuesday evening.
The Power is hungry to regain darts' richest prize but must see off strong opposition if he is to become champion of the world once again.
The Stoke ace failed to move out of second gear during his 3-1 victory over Haruki Muramatsu in round one, but still maintained an average just shy of 100. Ladbrokes
offer 1/9 that he gets the better of Dave Chisnall.
Chisnall, a former Lakeside finalist, impressed in his opening win over Mark Dudbridge and has been tipped by many as a good each way bet to challenge for the title.
Both players possess clinical scoring power, however Chizzy has been known to miss doubles under pressure, something which could be punished by The Power.
Chisnall has got the game to make Taylor work hard for victory but the 31-year-old’s lack of experience in this tournament might count against him. Even so, odds of 11/2 look interesting.
Taylor can be backed at 9/4 with Ladbrokes
to claim a 4-0 win, while a 4-1 victory is available at the same price, while Chisnall can be backed at 11/10 with a +2.5 set handicap.
The duo are yet to meet in major televised competition and will go head-to-head for the right to face either Vincent van der Voort or Andy Hamilton in the last 16.
The match gets underway at 8.30pm on Tuesday and will be streamed live over the best of seven sets from the Alexandra Palace, London.
