Phil Taylor is back on the oche tonight when he plays Ian White for a quarter final spot in the World Matchplay Darts.
Michael van Gerwen, James Wade, Terry Jenkins and Adrian Lewis are all safely into the quarter finals of the World Matchplay, with four remaining places up for grabs tonight and we should be set for another exciting night of darts.
The legendary Phil Taylor topped the first round averages and the reigning World Matchplay champion faces Ian White in his second round match tonight, with The Power a heavy favourite to book a last eight spot and inch closer to a potential final against protégé Adrian Lewis.
Perhaps the most attractive match is the one between Wes Newton and Justin Pipe which is a rematch of the 2012 World Championship clash in January where Newton lost his head thanks to Pipe’s slow playing style.
Newton told Live-Darts reporter Jamie Shaw that he has learnt his lesson
from that particular episode although it could still be a tasty encounter with so much at stake.
Andy Hamilton v Mark Webster gets the evening under way and could be an evenly-matched affair, with the evening finishing off with a match between Dean Winstanley and Ronnie Baxter.
