THE PLAYERS

ADAM SMITH-NEALE

  • Adam Smith-Neale played whilst on crutches on his debut at the 2019 World Championship due to a broken leg and crashed out 3-0 with an average of 66.54.
  • Smith-Neale’s greatest darting achievement came when he won the 2018 World Masters having defeated Jim Williams and Glen Durrant along the way.

PAUL HOGAN

  • Paul Hogan hit six 180s and recorded an impressive 158 checkout during a 3-1 win against Brian Raman in his prelim round match on Sunday.
  • Hogan has lost in the last 32 in three of his last four appearance at the BDO World Championship.

THE PREDICTION

Adam-Smith Neale had a debut to forget last year when he played whilst on crutches so he will want to do himself justice this time out. His task is not going to be easy though against the experienced and very capable Paul Hogan who is a player all of the seeds would have wanted to avoid. Hogan can use all his knowhow to oust the higher-ranked player from the tournament.
