Previous meeting: Michael Smith 6-3 Nathan Aspinall
This is an intriguing match to start the evening with recent UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall full of confidence and having no real pressure facing Michael Smith who is really in need of wins to ease concerns of elimination. There have been some excellent performances from the ‘contenders’ who have been brought in to replace Gary Anderson and one would expect Aspinall to rise to the occasion also. He looks comfortable on the big stage and will relish the chance to showcase his ability in front of a big crowd.
When they met back in late December in the semi-finals at the World Championship it was a high-quality encounter with Smith just having enough quality to pull away from his tenacious opponent. Although Smith hasn’t consistently hit the heights since that tournament, he impressed in his run to the semi-finals at the UK Open and didn’t play badly in defeat against Cross last week. It’s going to be a tough game for Smith but he can ease his elimination fears with a hard-fought win against the rising star from Stockport.
