It's the final night of action before Ally Pally closes its doors for three days, and after a difficult opening to this year's spectacle Wayne Mardle is hoping to conclude round one with a nice price winner...


"The price of 7/4 for this to go five sets is quite appealing, I just don't see one way traffic."

Wow... what a first round that was!

The real big hitters all surviving, though Mighty Mike certainly got a mighty scare, but it was a different story for the likes of Peter Wright, James Wade, Gary Anderson, and Phil Taylor, who all won 3-0 with 95+ averages.

It's the conclusion of round one this evening, who'll fill the last spots in the draw?

Styles make matches they say, if that's the case then this should be a long match going deep in to the last set.

These two dartists play the game in a steady fashion, not doing anything too flashy but what they do, they do well.

Gerwen has had his moments in the last 12 months, reaching the quarter-finals of the World Matchplay being the highlight, beating Adrian Lewis on the way.

Goldfinger Gilding's best result was a semi-final showing in the UK Open in March, beating James Wade, though a 108 average wasn't good enough in the semi-final to see off a rampant Michael van Gerwen.

Both players are making just their second World Championship appearance, both lost their first 3-0.

The price of 7/4 for this to go five sets is quite appealing, I just don't see one way traffic.
