Wright-Smith headlines Quarter-Finals at Players Championship 23
A repeat of the World Championship final headlines a wide open Quarter-Final line-up at Players Championship 23 with Michael Smith and Peter Wright being the two favourites to lift the title today.
But a player who could await in the final is yesterday's winner, Nathan Aspinall who bluffed after his win last night and said don't bet on me as my wrist is aching but could yet go back-to-back. He faces Shaun Wilkinson.
The winner of that tie will face either Alan Soutar or Ted Evetts in a big chance at the top of the draw, while the same can be said for a potential addition to Chris Dobey's ranking collection when he faces Keegan Brown.
