Fans favourite Raymond van Barneveld looks to get his play-off hunt back on track as he comes up against a determined Andy Hamilton in the third match of the night.
The North West contingent of the Barney Army are likely to be out in force this evening as the Dutchman eyes a return to the top four.
Barney slipped out of the Semi-Final places for the first time in a number of weeks following a disappointing defeat to Simon Whitlock last week.
The five-time world champion will be hoping to settle the score and prove that sluggish display was a rare blip as he looks to pile the pressure on the players above him.
Stoke ace Hamilton moved off the bottom of the table last week and has dug deep to earn two consecutive draws to keep his slim hopes alive.
He is level on eight points with fellow league newcomer Kevin Painter and knows that anything but a win this week will end his chances of sneaking through the back door to reach the O2 in London next month.
The duo have met 16 times in previous major competition and Barneveld boasts an incredible record having lost only once to the world finalist. Their last meeting earlier in the season went the distance but was pipped by Barney 8-6.
Their latest meeting could follow suit, but the bookmakers make Barney the favourite at 8/11, with Hamilton offering value at 2/1 for victory. The draw is a 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 Echo Arena, Liverpool.
