The Flying Scotsman withdrew from the trip to the Welsh capital following the death of his father this week.

The tragic news comes in the same week as the darting community says goodbye to twice world champion Jocky Wilson, who also died at the weekend.

Before play commences at 7pm there will be a minutes applause in memory of Jocky.

Adrian Lewis will then kick off the night's action against fellow Stokie Andy Hamilton in the first of his two matches.

Jackpot moved off the foot of the table last week at the expense of Hamilton courtesy of his first win of the season.

The Hammer will be out to send the world champion back to the bottom by defeating him in a revenge mission following his loss to Lewis in the World Championship final in January.

The resurgent James Wade faces in-form Aussie Simon Whitlock in the second game on stage for what promises to be a close-run entertaining encounter.

Despite losing to Phil Taylor last week, Wade has picked up his form considerably and is deadly on the doubles as is his opponent.

Two points would help both players massively in their bid to reach the play-offs and there is little to choose between them on paper.

Kevin Painter looks to avoid three straight defeats but is up against it as he runs into a rampant Phil Taylor in a repeat of the infamous 2004 world final.

The Artist will take encouragemnt from his performance against The Power earlier in the season where he established a commanding early lead but found himself on the wrong end of a nine darter, losing the match 8-5.

Taylor took a clean sweep by winning both UK Open qualifying events in Barnsley at the weekend and will be out to extend his unbeaten run at the top of the table.

Adrian Lewis returns for the final and most promising match of the night as he hosts five-time world champion Raymond van Barneveld.

Lewis will have already sampled the atmosphere and will be looking to build on his earlier game against Andy Hamilton.

Barney fired in a 107 average in his win over Gary Anderson last week and currently occupies second spot.

The duo played out a highly entertaining 7-7 draw earlier in the season and their latest meeting could also go the distance.

The action gets underway at 7pm on Thursday, with matches played over the best of 14 legs and streamed live from the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff.
