THE PLAYERS

LISA ASHTON

  • Four-time champion Lisa Ashton began her campaign with a very comfortable 2-0 win in round one against Paula Jacklin.
  • Ashton didn’t need to be at her best as she swept aside her opponent with an average of 79.81, with the highlight of her performance being a checkout of 110.
  • This is her ninth time in the quarter-finals at the BDO World Championships and she has five wins from her last six matches at this stage of the tournament.

LORRAINE WINSTANLEY

  • 2019 runner-up Lorraine Winstanley made it through to the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory against Casey Gallagher on Wednesday afternoon.
  • Winstanley took the opening set against Gallagher without dropping a leg and managed to avoid going into a decider by claiming the fifth leg of the second set.
  • Her win against Trina Gulliver in the last eight last year ended a run of four consecutive defeats in quarter-final matches at the BDO World Championship.

THE PREDICTION

Lisa Ashton faces a tough test against a player who has a decent record against her with Winstanley holding her own in their previous meetings. This is their first ever meeting on the World Championship stage however and Ashton has the potential to play to a standard that her opponent cannot match. Ashton to win whilst having the highest average is the pick.
