William O'Connor v Marko Kantele - 20:00

Consistency to prevail

Gary Anderson vs Brendan Dolan - 21:30

Former Champion to find his rhythm

Two-time world champion, Gary Anderson makes his return to Alexandra Palace in the final game of the evening as the Scot comes up against Brendan Dolan.

Anderson's been out-of-sorts over the last year or so after battling a back injury. The Scot's only competed in a handful of events on-tour this season.

As for Dolan, the 'History Maker' produced an impressive display in his opening round win over Nitin Kumar on Sunday afternoon - wrapping up a 3-0 victory over the Indian-based player.

Both players have produced high-quality spells of form in terms of their seasonal averages. Anderson, although he hasn't played in a great deal of events this year, has an overall 3-dart average of 97.03 spread over just 27 matches, producing 73 maximums, which is an impressive statistic.

As for Dolan, the Irishman boasts a 94.51 average spanning over 58 matches, hitting 72 maximums.

As far as previous meetings go, the pair have met on 16 occasions with the shares spoiled evenly at 8-8. Although, Anderson has been victorious in their last three meetings. It's worth noticing that the pair haven't met since February 2017.

I feel that the number of maximums that Anderson's struck this year compared to Dolan, the Scot will hit maximums with more regularity than his Irish opponent.
