The Fifth Round of the UK Open will commence tomorrow afternoon. The draw has thrown up another interesting set of matches. The highlights could be Peter Wright vs Ian White, Simon Whitlock vs Chris Dobey and Rob Cross vs Micheal Smith.
Several players are showing signs of a return to their best for this event. Alan Tabern has come through some tough matches to reach the last 32 and a lash with Stephen Bunting. Jelle Klaasen is also going nicely so far.
MVG, fresh from knocking out reigning UK Open Champion Nathan Aspinall, will take on Jason Lowe. Black Country player Lowe has been performing very well since regaining his tour card and Micheal would be wise to not underestimate him.
