The PDC Autumn Series consists of five Players Championship tournaments from September 12-16. All results during this five-day event count towards the PDC Autumn Series Order of Merit.

Update - 17:10 BST Time - Petersen punished by Price in thrilling final

It is PDC ranking title number 12 for 'The Iceman' Gerwyn Price as he cruelly denied Devon Petersen his first in Niedernhausen. He came from 7-4 down against 'The African Warrior' who made his first PDC final and missed four match darts for his first triumph.

Read about it below:

Thanks once again for joining us on today's Live Blog, join us again tomorrow morning as the action reaches it's conclusion on Day Five.

Update - 16:25 BST Time - Price set to face Petersen in today's final

The final is confirmed at today's PDC Autumn Series and it will see Gerwyn Price take on Devon Petersen in a hotly anticipated clash.

Petersen defeated Price on Monday but at the PDC Summer Series despite averaging 113, 'The African Warrior' lost out to 'The Iceman' in the semi-finals.

The latter has now broken his duck of semi-finals after defeating his best mate, Joe Cullen in a 7-2 win where he went on an excellent run after a shaky start. Can he claim a first PDC title?

Price has made a final on at least every weekend barring one this year where he went home early and he defeated the only other ranking winner this year left in the field, Ryan Searle with a 105 average 7-2.

Who takes the title?

Semi-Finals

Joe Cullen (94.4) 2 | 7 (95.8) Devon Petersen

Gerwyn Price (105.8) 7 | 2 (97.6) Ryan Searle

Final

Gerwyn Price - | - Devon Petersen

Update - 15:50 BST Time - Price v Searle and Petersen v Cullen set for semi-finals

The semi-finals are confirmed on Day Four of the PDC Autumn Series and it sees two players facing off who have won titles this year and two who have not.

The two who have not are Devon Petersen and Joe Cullen - the latter is of course a Euro Tour winner and a multiple Players Championship winner and has been looking in red hot form this week. He averaged 100 in dispelling Derk Telnekes 6-3.

In Petersen though, he will be facing not only one of his best friends but also a player also in formidable form. An unstoppable 110 average saw him ease past Nathan Aspinall 6-2 and he will hope to make his first PDC final today.

The other semi-final sees top seed Gerwyn Price who saw off Mensur Suljovic face Ryan Searle who won PC3 earlier this season and defeated Ross Smith 6-4 - both players have gone under the radar this week and it is 'Heavy Metal' who will have aspirations to win a second of the season.

Quarter-Finals

Joe Cullen (100.4) 6 | 3 (94.1) Derk Telnekes

Devon Petersen (110.0) 6 | 2 (96.5) Nathan Aspinall

Gerwyn Price (91.4) 6 | 4 (94.4) Mensur Suljovic

Ross Smith (96.7) 6 | 5 (96.6) Ryan Searle

Semi-Finals

Joe Cullen - | - Devon Petersen

Gerwyn Price - | - Ryan Searle

Update - 15:10 BST Time - Clinical Cullen hits 112 average in brilliant win against Wright as Quarter-Final line-up confirmed in Niedernhausen

The Quarter-Final line-up has been confirmed on Day Four of the PDC Autumn Series and it will include Joe Cullen after another clinical display to dump out World Champion, Peter Wright.

Cullen who has been superb all week saw off Rob Cross in the Last 32 and followed that up with a 112 average to defeat Wright who himself averaged 6-4 in an epic tie. He concluded proceedings with a 130 checkout to win.

He will take on Derk Telnekes who has had another superb run and saw off James Wade 6-4 with a 100 average.

Devon Petersen is into the Last Eight, he defeated Jermaine Wattimena 6-3 and will take on Nathan Aspinall next.

Gerwyn Price averaged 104 and swept aside Ryan Murray in a whitewash win. He will next face Mensur Suljovic who defeated William O'Connor in a decider.

Then it is Ross Smith and Ryan Searle in the last Quarter-Final with both continuing good form they have also shown this week with victories over Krzysztof Ratajski and Jonny Clayton putting them into contention.

Last 16

Joe Cullen (112.2) 6 | 4 (106.1) Peter Wright

James Wade (97.7) 4 | 6 (100.8) Derk Telnekes

Devon Petersen (99.5) 6 | 3 (91.5) Jermaine Wattimena

Nathan Aspinall (91.6) 6 | 5 (96.8) Danny Noppert

Jonny Clayton (99.0) 3 | 6 (99.0) Ryan Searle

Quarter-Finals

Joe Cullen - | - Derk Telnekes

Devon Petersen - | - Nathan Aspinall

Gerwyn Price - | - Mensur Suljovic

Ross Smith - | - Ryan Searle

Update - 14:30 BST Time - Wright survives scare against Edgar, Cullen impressive in dispatching Cross

The Last 16 is taking shape on the fourth day of the PDC Autumn Series with only one winner so far left in proceedings in Peter Wright and he had to survive a scare against Matthew Edgar.

Edgar had opportunities to break throw throughout the match and finally went 5-4 up only to suffer a break back on his own throw to win and as a result, 'Snakebite' took the victory and looks to be the favourite going forward.

Joe Cullen could pose a real threat though to the World Champion's ambitions of making it two from four. Impressive all week, 'The Rockstar' hit a 96.8 average in a 6-2 win over Rob Cross to dump another big name out of proceedings.

Premier League leader Glen Durrant is also out after a narrow 6-5 defeat to Ryan Searle. Gerwyn Price is through though after dumping out another of this week's winners Damon Heta 6-4.

Other players through include nine-dart hero James Wade, Krzysztof Ratajski, Nathan Aspinall and Danny Noppert as the action comes towards it's conclusion today.

Update - 13:50 BST Time - Petersen first through to Last 16 with brilliant whitewash win over Van Gerwen

Devon Petersen's brilliance continues in the PDC Autumn Series with 'The African Warrior' accounting for the World Number One, Michael van Gerwen in emphatic fashion.

Read about it below:

Update - 13:40 BST Time - Van Gerwen set for third round clash with Petersen, Cullen and Searle hit 108 averages in thumping wins

The third round line-up has been confirmed at the fourth PDC Autumn Series with Michael van Gerwen set to take on Devon Petersen in a rematch of their clash at the Summer Series.

It was Petersen who was the victor that time en route to an excellent run - could it be the same today or will he not be able to stop the Green Machine.

The way Joe Cullen and Ryan Searle are playing could prove unstoppable. The former claimed a 6-2 victory over Kirk Shepherd averaging 108.

Searle has been smashing in the big averages at times this week and hit 108 in easing past Lisa Ashton 6-0.

Speaking of whitewash wins, Peter Wright eased past Max Hopp 6-0 and will now take on 'Prime Time' Matthew Edgar in the Last 32.

Gerwyn Price, Damon Heta and Glen Durrant are also all through as the latter stages begin to take shape.

Update 13:00 BST Time - Clayton hits 112 average during win over Smith as first round concludes

The first round has concluded on Day Four of the PDC Autumn Series with Jonny Clayton among the players to make an impression in the rest of the results.

Clayton hit a 112.5 average in easing past Jeff Smith 6-1. The Canadian is after a World Grand Prix debut but hasn't had a successful time of it in Germany mostly due to brilliant performances from his opponents.

There were also wins for the likes of Lisa Ashton (d. Matt Clark 6-3), Adrian Lewis (d. Stephen Bunting 6-3) and Simon Whitlock (d. Darius Labanauskas 6-3) as the action reaches the Last 64 stage.
