The two clash at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool tonight (Friday) in what is likely to be a cracking encounter with 16 legs the target for both players.

The 30-year-old from St Helens has battled his way to this stage of a tournament, which seems to bring the best out of him, by knocking out Ryan Searle of Somerset 10-7 and Jose De Sousa of Portugal 13-11.

The top prize in a competition, which runs until Sunday, is £150,000. Don't miss it!
