THE PLAYERS

WAYNE WARREN

  • Wayne Warren defeated Wesley Harms at this stage of the tournament two years ago and in 2019 he won in straight sets against Mark Layton.
  • Warren qualified for the Grand Slam of Darts in 2019 due to his BDO ranking, though he failed to win a match in a group containing Peter Wright, Danny Noppert and Ryan Harrington.

JUSTIN THOMPSON

  • Justin Thompson defeated Scott Williams 3-0 in a prelim to successfully reach round one for the third consecutive year at the BDO World Championship.
  • Australian qualifier Thompson lost out 3-2 on both previous appearances in the 1st round with defeats against Fitton and Unterbuchner.

THE PREDICTION

Number five seed Wayne Warren faces a tough test in round one against the methodical Justin Thompson who may have some kind of advantage having already played a match at this new venue. Warren is a better player and should have the ability to compensate for this though and he is predicted to win in five sets.
