Last 16 do Battle at Ally Pally

There are six quarter-final places up for grabs on the final night of darting action in 2010 as the third round of the 2011 PDC World Championships conclude at Alexandra Palace.

Adrian ‘Jackpot’ Lewis and Robert Thornton do battle in the first of the day’s matches. Both players have impressed so far throughout this event with 90+ averages in each of their respective matches and if either of them have an off day then the other is more than capable of sending the other packing.

The bookmakers price Jackpot at a short odds-on price of 1/3 whilst it is 3/1 that Thornton continues his good run of form. The last 16 stage is still a best-of-7 format but we can expect there will be a few sets played here if these two continue their recent run of form.

Also facing off for a place in the quarter-finals of the event during the afternoon session is Mark Walsh and Terry ‘The Bull’ Jenkins. The winner of the match will contest at the quarter-final stage of the World Championships at Ally Pally for the first time in their career, although Jenkins did qualify for the last eight when the event was staged at the Circus Tavern in 2007.

The pair have played each other nine times previously in their careers with Walsh boasting a 6-3 advantage over his opponent. Nevertheless it is the higher ranked Jenkins who is made the clear betting favourite to go through to the next round at odds of 4/7.

The evening session begins with Simon Whitlock against Vincent van der Voort. Whitlock picked up the marker thrown down by Taylor early on in the tournament when posting a 102.86 average in his 4-0 second round win over Dennis Ovens.

Van der Voort progressed to the last 16 stage of the event for the first time in his career by beating Wayne Jones 4-2 in the second round. The Aussie is a 2/9 chance to progress to the quarter-finals whilst the Dutchman is 4/1.
