Schedule and preview Saturday evening session 2022 Hungarian Darts Trophy including Van Gerwen-Whitlock and return of Wright

After time away from the oche due to gallbladder surgery, Peter Wright will return on Saturday evening after missing the World Series and will be involved in the Hungarian Darts Trophy.

Fifth game up, he will face Jim Williams as he looks to begin his quest back to full fitness with the goal of World Number One in mind. A player in Gerwyn Price who is not in Budapest after withdrawing late meaning Madars Razma has received a bye.

Michael van Gerwen will be looking to add yet more titles this season as he is in action against a player who has become his nemesis as such during his tumultous times as well as recently on the World Series in Simon Whitlock who can always find a way to beat the Green Machine.

Will that happen again on Saturday night or will Van Gerwen surge towards the latter stages? Luke Humphries is the only player to dominate more than MVG this year on the European Tour and he looks for a fifth title of the season when he starts against Boris Krcmar.

Rob Cross who has form of losing in the finals to Van Gerwen and Humphries will look to finally claim his maiden European Tour title with his European Championship defence upcoming. While Raymond van Barneveld makes his first appearance of the season on the European Tour facing Jose de Sousa.

Other ties in an action packed session of darts include Joe Cullen facing Martin Lukeman and Stephen Bunting taking on Nathan Aspinall. This afternoon only two seeds made it through, will the same happen tonight?
