THE PLAYERS

SCOTT MITCHELL

  • Scott Mitchell has not had much turnaround time between matches having defeated Scott Waites 5-4 in an epic quarter-final tussle that didn’t finish until very late on Friday night.
  • Mitchell and Waites served up a tremendous competitive encounter that swung one way and the other, and Mitchell impressively held his nerve with a checkout of 68 to win the deciding set.
  • This is Mitchell’s second time in the semi-finals of the BDO World Championship, and on his previous appearance in the last four back in 2015 he defeated Jeff Smith 6-0 on his way to lifting the title.

WAYNE WARREN

  • Wayne Warren is through to the semi-finals at the BDO World Championship for the first time in his career having defeated Chris Landman 5-3 in the quarter-finals on Friday afternoon.
  • Warren was in fine form on the treble twenty against Landman as he notched a total of 15 180s during the contest. He leads 21-9 against Mitchell in their tournament 180s tally.
  • The Welshman does have some experience of beating Mitchell in a televised tournament, as he won 7-2 when they met at the 2015 BDO World Trophy, not long after Mitchell won his world title.

THE PREDICTION

The schedule is tough for Mitchell as he opens up the afternoon session after finishing his quarter-final match against Waites very late on Friday evening. The opposition for Scotty Dog in this match is also difficult with Warren a very capable and consistent performer. Mitchell knows what it takes to go all the way in this tournament though, and he can rise to the occasion and reach his second world final.
