The winner will be guaranteed to book their place at the O2 for finals night, with the loser set to suffer heartbreak on the big stage.

Despite a four-game winless run, Barney has shown new-found grit and determination to earn two consecutive draws and remain firmly in contention.

He has proved wrong the doubters who wrote off his chances prior to the tournament and is likely to be roared on by his partizan 'Barney Army' who will be hoping the Dutchman can prevail from the high pressure encounter.

Wade recovered from a sluggish start to the league and goes into the final night occupying the all-important fourth spot.

The 2009 champion missed out on the play-offs last year and will be desperate to settle the score this time around. A win would secure his place, but depending on other results, a draw may not be enough.

Both are renowned clinical all-round players and are set to provide a thrilling contest with ultra high stakes on Thursday.

The duo have met 35 times in previous major competition and incredibly there is nothing between them, with both taking 17 wins and sharing the spoils on one occasion.

The Machine came out on top 8-6 during their last meeting earlier in the league season, and this one is also likely to go the distance. 

The bookmakers struggle to pick a winner, but install Wade as the slight favourite at 11/10, with Barneveld on offer at 13/10 for victory. The draw is a realistic 9/2 chance also with Bet365.

The match gets underway at 8.45pm GMT and will be streamed live over the best of 14 legs from the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle.

Match permutations

James Wade - Must win to be sure of Play-Off place, but could still be eliminated with a draw.
Raymond van Barneveld - Must win to be sure of Play-Off place, but could still qualify with a draw.
