The last 16 ties at this year’s PDC World Darts Championship have been confirmed following Thursday afternoon’s action at the Alexandra Palace.
The first two matches take place on Thursday evening as 2021 champion Gerwyn Price takes on 17th seed Jose De Sousa.
Price got the better of five-time champion Raymond van Barneveld earlier this week, while Portuguese native De Sousa came from 3-0 behind to defeat Ryan Searle.
The last game of the night sees Jonny Clayton and Northern Irish youngster Josh Rock face off in a mouth-watering tie.
The remaining six matches are split between Friday’s two sessions.
