With just one day of Q-School action left, things are hotting up in Wigan.

Six players have earned Tour Cards so far at UK Q-School qualifying, and two more automatic spots are up for grabs. The other 15 are available through the Q-School Order of Merit. With hundreds of players potentially in the mix, competition is fierce. Currently, Nathan Aspinall is best placed. The 26-year old has appeared in a semi-final and a quarter-final, but only reached the last 128 on Saturday. Just behind Aspinall are Ross Smith and Ryan Harrington, who have both reached a quarter-final this week. They are on 11 and 10 points respectively.

Just ahead of the chasing pack on nine points are Darren Beveridge and Ryan Murray. Youngsters Callan Rydz and Dawson Murschell are in a five-way tie for sixth place, on eight points. As it stands, they will receive a card through the Order of Merit. After them are ten players who are all on seven points. Lee Evans, David Pallett, Cameron Menzies, Trevor Burkhill and Luke Woodhouse are in line to take the final spots. Simon Stevenson, Peter Hudson, John Mann, Ken MacNeil and Steven Kirkby would just miss out.

Countback is the all-important word in case of a tie. If two players are on the same number of points on Sunday evening, the player who went the furthest on day four will win. If they made the same run, it would go down to performances on day three. Countback continues until day one. If the pair have achieved identical results all week, legs won and leg difference would be the tiebreakers.

The last two players from each UK Qualifying School event secure automatic PDC Tour Cards, with remaining players earning ranking points. Ranking points are awarded with one point per win from rounds where there are no Byes onwards.
