The fourth Players Championship will begin shortly with another day of top tungsten set to take place at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan.

Ryan Searle claimed victory yesterday to add his name to the roll of honour; which this year includes Gary Anderson and Nathan Aspinall.

All three will be in action today, as will many of the world’s best including Michael van Gerwen, Gerwyn Price and Rob Cross.

In terms of the top ties, Anderson is involved in one of them when he takes on Jeffrey de Zwaan. The duo have had some great battles since ‘The Black Cobra’ emerged and with Anderson unseeded once more, it could be another tough Sunday to come for ‘The Flying Scotsman’.

Also Glen Durrant will take on Dirk van Duijvenbode. The latter has been exceptional this year and is one of the most in-form on the ProTour meaning this game will likely be one to watch.

Jamie Hughes against Scott Waites is also on the draw with the two former BDO players facing off for the first time since the latter moved over.

As well as the matter of Michael Smith versus Darius Labanauskas. Both players played well yesterday including the Lithuanian who showed some of his best form yet on the tour with a 107 average on the streaming board.
