Derry's Daryl Gurney will face third ranked Gerwyn 'The Iceman' Price in Friday's Quarter-Final of the PDC World Darts Championship at London's Alexandra Palace.
Price, a former Welsh rugby player, beat Mervyn King 4-1 in Wednesday's Round 4 clash.
Gurney, ranked 11th, won 4-2 against Holland's Vincent van der Voort and will aim to go one better than 2017, when he lost at the same stage (5-1) eventual champion Michael van Gerwen.
Price lost out to Peter Wright in the 2020 semi-finals, a tie tinged with controversy after a spat between the two. Wright won 6-3 on his way to the title.
