Live Darts on Sunday: Perth Darts Masters 2017 Day Three preview and order of play

The PDC's annual tour of New Zealand and Australia draws to a close on Sunday as the final four battle it out for the right to claim the 2017 Perth Masters title.

The three-week tour, which has seen a host of tungsten titans touch down in Auckland, Melbourne and Perth, culminates at the HBF Stadium as the four remaining hopefuls vie for the £20,000 top prize.

With Phil Taylor having bowed out of the competition at the Quarter-Final hurdle and Michael van Gerwen out of action this month, a new name is to be etched onto the trophy on Sunday.

Gary Anderson is the only player left standing in the tournament to have previously claimed World Series silverware, and 'The Flying Scotsman' will be keen to add to his tally.

The reigning Dubai Masters champion takes on James Wade in the opening Semi-Final - with the left-hander out to go one step further than his runner-up spot here two years ago.

Anderson has saved his best performances until last this month after enduring disappointing campaigns in both the Auckland Masters and Melbourne Masters.

The world number two has a tournament average of 99 following a 6-1 rout of Rob Szabo and a 10-5 defeat of home favourite Simon Whitlock - in which he came from 5-4 behind.

Wade produced one of his best displays of the year to date in overcoming Michael Smith 10-5 with a 101 average and a high checkout of 140 on Saturday.

Wade has lost just two of his last eight meetings with the Scot and victory here would see him reach his first televised final since last November's Grand Slam of Darts.

In-form Daryl Gurney bids to reach his second World Series final of the season by putting paid to the hopes of Raymond van Barneveld - the only player to have featured in all 25 World Series events since its inception in 2013.

Gurney, runner-up at the US Masters in Las Vegas, has proved the stand-out performer of the weekend so far, missing a combined total of just four darts at doubles in his wins over Koha Kokiri and Peter Wright

Gurney enters the clash with a tournament average of 101.8 and will be out to utilise his superior leg-on-leg scoring power in the first televised meeting between the two players.

Van Barneveld has battled hard to earn his place in the Last Four, prevailing in last-leg deciders against Corey Cadby and Phil Taylor and will be quietly confident of challenging for glory.

Victory over 'Superchin' would see him through to his third World Series final, following on from the 2013 Dubai Masters and 2015 Auckland Masters.

The action gets underway from 10am BST, with all matches to be contested over the best of 21 legs at the HBF Stadium in Perth, Australia.
