Phil Taylor will take on Paul Nicholson in the pick of tonight's fifth round matches at the UK Open.
Nicholson earlier defeated Premier League champion Gary Anderson 9-8 and will be hoping to continue his fine run of form to beat The Power in Bolton.
"I'm not scared of anybody and I never have been" said Nicholson. "It doesn't matter to me that I've drawn Phil and I'll relish the challenge."
Taylor is yet to hit top form, despite seeing off old foe Dennis Priestley in fairly comfortable fashion in round four, but no doubt Nicholson will pose a much greater threat.
Taylor has not made it to a major televised final for almost a year, however the bookmakers make him clear favourite to go one step closer, as he is 1/8 to overcome The Asset with William Hill.
Elsewhere on the main stage, twice winner of the tournament Raymond van Barneveld faces Wes Newton and James Wade takes on the 1995 world champion Richie Burnett.
