Results Day Two - PDC Autumn Series: Heta becomes first time PDC ranking winner with victory over Cullen (Live Blog)

The 15th Players Championship event of the season will be played during the second day of the PDC Autumn Series. All results can be followed in our live blog.

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 - Heta becomes first time PDC ranking winner with victory over Cullen

Damon Heta is the victor on Day Two of the PDC Autumn Series after defeating Joe Cullen in the final to become a first time PDC Ranking winner adding to his victory at the Brisbane Darts Masters.

Read about it below and thanks for following along the coverage of Day Two!

Update 16:30 - BST Time - Cullen set to face Heta in final

The final is set on the second day of the PDC Summer Series with Joe Cullen set to face Damon Heta - with the latter being a first time ranking finalist in his maiden year as a Tour Card holder.

Heta of course has pedigree and is a TV champion having won the Brisbane Darts Masters in stunning fashion last year. He has regularly been among the top performers when he has played this year albeit with Coronavirus halting his ability to play in the Summer Series.

He has firmly come back with a bang though today defeating Michael van Gerwen earlier and now disposing of Stephen Bunting in a game that while wasn't his best never saw him massively troubled by 'The Bullet'.

In Cullen's semi-final it was very much different with the Bradford ace winning the last three legs to defeat Aspinall in a last leg decider to move through. A two time winner on the ProTour but both back in 2017, he now has the opportunity to add to that if he can deal with 'The Heat'.

Quarter-Finals

Gerwyn Price (103.2) 5 | 6 (103.0) Joe Cullen

Nathan Aspinall (87.3) 6 | 5 (91.5) Ian White

Update 15:50 - BST Time - Cullen v Aspinall and Bunting v Heta set for semi-finals

We have our semi-final line-up in Niedernhausen with Joe Cullen set to face Nathan Aspinall and Stephen Bunting to take on Damon Heta.

Cullen edged past Gerwyn Price - the favourite at that point for the title in a 6-5 win which saw both players average the 103 mark. 'The Rockstar' has been impressive over the past three days and has been going about his business well.

This performance was in stark contrast to Nathan Aspinall who edged past Ian White in a game where both were frustrated that they couldn't produce their best darts. The former UK Open champion though will still get an opportunity to add to his title haul.

Stephen Bunting will want to add to his title haul. 'The Bullet' has new darts and has looked one of the best in the field today, he breezed past Simon Whitlock 6-2.

He will now take on Damon Heta, the Brisbane Darts Master who accounted for Michael van Gerwen earlier today and he will get a chance of a potential first PDC ranking final.
