Defending Auckland Darts Masters Champion Gary Anderson will take on Kyle Anderson in a massive all Unicorn affair on Friday!

Gary is the top seed as he looks for his second World Series title of the year, while Kyle comes to New Zealand in top form having just won his first PDC title at the weekend.

"It couldn't be tougher," admitted the Scot. "Kyle is a great player and he has proved that again at the weekend."

The Aussie said: "These are the games that I relish and the way I am playing at the moment, I am confident against any opponent. It will be a great game against Gary."

Team Unicorn's World Series debutant Michael Smith opens up against New Zealand No.1 Rob Szabo.

"I just can't wait to get going," he said. "The next three weeks is a great chance for me and I intend to take it. Being involved in the World Series is another big step up for me."

Unicorn ace James Wade is seeded fourth. He takes on Kiwi Mark Cleaver in the 1st Round.

Wade and the Anderson's are in the top half of the draw, while Smith is in the bottom half and could face second seed Peter Wright in the quarter-finals.

Delayed coverage of the Auckland Darts Masters is on each day at 7pm on ITV4
