LAST MEETING
Simon Whitlock 5-4 Gerwyn Price

THE LOWDOWN

SIMON WHITLOCK

  • Whitlock reached the quarter-finals at the Grand Slam for the third time in his career following a gritty 10-6 win over Peter Wright.

  • The pair have already met this week with Whitlock winning a sensational group match 5-4 which saw the Wizard reach the knockout stages.

GERWYN PRICE

  • Price easily dealt with the challenge of Josh Payne in the Round of 16 on Wednesday and the Welshman never needed to get out of second gear.

  • The Iceman will have revenge on his mind after his group stage defeat to Whitlock and he will bring his usual passion and bravado to the oche.

THE PREDICTION

One of the matches of the group stage saw these two face off with Whitlock producing a sensational comeback from 1-4 down. Price missed match darts in that encounter and will be determined to atone for that, but Whitlock's confidence is flying and he will fancy his chances of repeating his win.
