Women’s Quarter-Finals take centre stage at the 2019 BDO World Championship on Thursday, while the Youth title is up for grabs and the defending men's champion returns to action.

Another action-packed double-header at Lakeside features all four women's Quarter-Finals, plus the remaining three men's Second Round ties.

Reigning champion Glen Durrant steps up his quest for a third consecutive Lakeside crown in what is likely to be his final campaign at Frimley Green as he takes on the highly-rated Scott Baker.

Durrant coasted to a straight sets win over New Zealand's Mark McGrath in his opener, landing seven 180s and averaging 94 in the process.

The Teessider is now odds-on favourite to go all the way once again, but will be poised for a tricky test from the unseeded West Midlands thrower - who ousted Ross Montgomery in straight sets in Round One.

Nicknamed 'The Mod', Baker was a quarter-finalist in the 2018 BDO World Trophy and notably won the German Masters last April.

Scott Mitchell, the 2015 champion, aims to overcome Poland's Krzysztof Kciuk in the afternoon session.

Mitchell, the number six seed, powered past Serbia's Oliver Ferenc 3-0 with a 94 average earlier in the week and is bidding to reach the Last Eight for only the third time in ten Lakeside appearances.

Debutant qualifier Kcuik knocked out number 11 seed Dave Parletti with a 3-1 scalp in Round One and could cause 'Scotty Dog' problems should he build on his match average of 86.

Northern Ireland's Kyle McKinstry aims to extend his ground-breaking run at Lakeside by dispatching Canada's David Cameron.

McKinstry held his nerve to edge out tenth seed Chris Landman in a tense deciding set and will look to utilise his power-scoring in a bid to remain on course for a potential Quarter-Final show-down with Durrant.

Cameron brushed aside former PDC world finalist Andy Hamilton in straight sets in the Preliminary Round before seeing off BDO stalwart Gary Robson 3-1 in Round One and is aiming to follow in the footsteps of compatriots John Part and Jeff Smith in reaching a Lakeside final.

Japanese sensation Mikuru Suzuki, conqueror of reigning and four-time World Champion Lisa Ashton in Round One, aims to prove that result was no flash in the pan as she faces Sharon Prins of the Netherlands in the afternoon session.

Fallon Sherrock, the number six seed and new tournament favourite, looks to follow up her impressive 89.6 average in Round One when she meets Maria O'Brien - who knocked out Deta Hedman in her opener.

Number one seed Lorraine Winstanley bids to reach only her second Lakeside Semi-Final at the expense of ten-time World Champion Trina Gulliver MBE - who came through a sudden death shoot-out against Karolina Podgórska on Wednesday.

Three-time World Champion Anastasia Dobromyslova failed to drop a leg in her opening round rout of Laura Turner but now faces a much tougher test in the form of fifth seed Aileen De Graaf - semi-finalist in 2016 and 2017.

The opening game of the day offers a glimpse into the future as 13-year-old Leighton Bennett and 16-year-old Nathan Girvan vie for the BDO World Youth Championship title.

Bennett burst onto the scene by winning the Cambridgeshire Open last year aged 12, defeating Ricky Evans along the way, and has recently by added to the Nevada management stable alongside the likes of Rob Cross and Stephen Bunting.

Scotland's Girvan lost out to Justin Van Tergouw in the final two years ago and will be determined to go one better this time around.

The action gets underway from 1pm GMT, with men's Second Round matches to be contested over the best of seven sets and women's Second Round ties best of three sets. All sets are the best of five legs.
