The first Saturday of the 2014 PDC Darts World Championship bring the first double-session with a bumper 10 matches spread across the day set to entertain the Alexandra Palace crowd.

Robert Thornton headlines the afternoon session as he takes on Andrew Gilding in the penultimate match, which follows Justin Pipe v Lawrence Ryder with both matches in the first round.

Andy Smith begins the day's action as he takes on Ronny Huybrects, while Scott MacKenzie and Daryl Gurney meet in a preliminary round in a bid to face Ronnie Baxter in the final game before the interval.

The evening session kicks off with a bang as Steve Beaton takes on Kyle Anderson, who is remembered for his brilliant nine-dart finish at the same venue this time last year. Mark McGrath and Scott Kirchner clash in another preliminary round match, with the winner facing the unenviable task of taking on the in-form Gary Anderson at the end of the night.


Before the Flying Scotsman's arrival though, Terry Jenkins takes on John Weber and Australian Simon Whitlock meets Darren Webster in what is set-up to be a thrilling day of darts.
