One hundred and twenty eight players started out on Friday afternoon, now just eight are left standing in their pursuit of the £60,000 major title.

Super Saturday at the UK Open witnessed a sequence of astonishing events, with Michael van Gerwen landing the eighth nine-dart finish in the history of the competition, before amateur ace Barry Lynn dismantled Gary Anderson.

The likes of Adrian Lewis, Raymond van Barneveld and Michael Smith also bowed out, leaving three players appearing in their first major televised Quarter-Final.

Lynn has become the story of the tournament so far, proving that his win over Brendan Dolan was no flash in the pan, going on to stun Anderson and see off Stuart Kellett.

The Rileys South Benfleet qualifier is the first amateur hopeful ever to reach this stage of the UK Open, and now faces the biggest match of his life against none other than man of the moment MVG.

Van Gerwen has picked up from where he left off in the two most recent Premier League nights, dropping just nine legs in remaining on course to land back-to-back UK Open crowns.

He is now the 4/11 favourite to return to the winner's circle this evening, and it looks like taking something extra special to halt his emphatic dominance.

Phil Taylor has continued his prolific return to form over the past month by remaining firmly in the running for a sixth UK Open title and a first since 2013.

The 16-time World Champion breezed past Arron Monk and Raymond van Barneveld before holding his nerve to edge out Vincent van der Voort 9-7 on Saturday day.

He has been handed a tricky Quarter-Final tie against resurgent Welshman Mark Webster - a player appearing in his third televised Quarter-Final in the space of six months.

Last year's runner-up Peter Wright aims to take another big step towards back-to-back finals by ending the landmark run of Bradford's Joe Cullen.

Wright has defeated Steve Beaton, Terry Jenkins and Darren Webster all by 9-5 scorelines and is poised for a stern test from the talented youngster - who put paid to the hopes of Stephen Bunting in the last round.

World Championship semi-finalist Jelle Klaasen looks to follow up his superb win over Adrian Lewis last night by overcoming Australian ace Kyle Anderson in the opening match of the afternoon.

Klaasen is appearing at this stage of the UK Open for the first time and will fancy his chances of challenging for a first PDC major title on a potentially gruelling finals day.

Anderson, meanwhile, has dropped only six legs in powering past Andy Hamilton, James Wilson and Benito van de Pas, each by 9-2 margins, and now aims to replicate that ruthless form on the Main Stage.

The draw for the Semi-Finals will be conducted on stage immediately following the fourth Quarter-Final.

The action gets underway at 12.45pm GMT, with Quarter-Final and Semi-Final matches to be contested over the best of 19 legs and the final best of 21 at the Butlins Minehead Resort.
