Thirty-two players have already been sent packing across the opening two days, now just one will be left standing after another marathon double-session.

The afternoon features eight gripping third round ties, before the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and final follow in quick succession later in the evening.

Phil Taylor remains the favourite to scoop a second consecutive European Tour crown, and ‘The Power’s’ latest test comes in the form of Australian ace Simon Whitlock – the man who he faced in the 2010 World Championship final.

Both players barely left third gear as they overcome Alex Roy and John Henderson in round two respectively, but look to turn on the style and contest a thrilling encounter on Sunday.

Reigning Lakeside champion Stephen Bunting has been perhaps the most impressive performer so far this weekend, and the St Helens star aims to continue his fine form by going all the way on day three.

Bunting fired in eight maximums in just seven legs as he thrashed Dave Chisnall 6-1 with a 108 average on Saturday night, but now faces another tricky test against Jamie Caven.

Caven produced a spectacular 156 checkout in coming from behind to edge out Terry Jenkins 6-5 in the last round, and will hope to demonstrate that sort of tenacity in what promises to be another quick-fire classic.

Home hero Mensur Suljovic aims to thrill a partisan crowd once again by taking the scalp of Robert Thornton.

Suljovic, Austria’s number one ranked player, dumped out Ian White on Saturday and will have the backing of a 1,200-strong crowd once again.

Thornton was the villain of the hour as he secured a narrow last-leg win over another local favourite – Rowby-John Rodriguez – in round two – and will be out to spoil the party for the second day running.

Andy Smith celebrates his 46th birthday with a clash against Ronnie Baxter, with ‘The Pie Man’ aiming to pick up from where he left off on Sunday night after dumping man of the moment Gary Anderson out of the competition with a superb 6-2 victory.

Travel partners Dean Winstanley and Wes Newton put their friendship to one side as they meet in round three.

Winstanley received a bye through the second round after World Champion Michael van Gerwen withdrew due to an ankle injury, while Newton battled past Germany’s Bernd Roith 6-2.

Form horse Benito van de Pas looks to continue his run under the radar this weekend by dispatching three-time World Champion John Part.

Emerging Dutch star Van de Pas has defeated William O’Connor and Belgian ace Kim Huybrechts en route to this stage, and still has a chance of gatecrashing the World Matchplay next month via the ProTour order of merit.

Part has seen off Marko Kantele and Mervyn King, and a good run on finals day here could kick-start a potential Indian summer for the Canadian legend.

World finalist Peter Wright takes on 1996 Lakeside Champion Steve Beaton, while the quick-fire Vincent van der Voort faces the methodical Northern Irishman – Brendan Dolan.
