THE PLAYERS

GLEN DURRANT

  • Glen Durrant edged out Chris Dobey 4-3 in the last 16 to keep alive his hopes of adding the PDC World Championship title to the three consecutive BDO titles he has won.
  • His performance against Dobey was statistically his weakest in the tournament so far, with average, checkout percentage and 180 count all lower than in his previous two matches.
  • Duzza is through to a World Championship quarter-final for the sixth consecutive time, and he has only lost one of his previous five matches in the last eight on a World Championship stage.

GERWYN PRICE

  • Gerwyn Price defeated Australia’s Simon Whitlock 4-2 to make it through to the quarter-finals at the PDC World Championship for the first time in his career.
  • Price struggled for consistency against Whitlock and finished the match with an average of 92.47, admitting afterwards that he struggled with the pace of the game.
  • The Welshman may be making his first appearance in a World Championship quarter-final but he has a very good recent record in TV quarter-final matches to draw upon with seven consecutive wins under his belt.

THE PREDICTION

The last of the quarter-finals looks to have the potential to be the closest one with three-time BDO world champion Glen Durrant facing back-to-back Grand Slam winner Gerwyn Price. Durrant is battle-hardened over this distance and he is unlikely to let Price run away with it, but the extra-gear that Price possesses might just be the telling factor in the key moments of the game. Price to win 5-3 is the prediction.
