Humphries will play the winner of Michael van Gerwen and Rob Cross in the semi-finals.

Welshman Price, 2021 World Champion, was unable to compete in last weekend’s Austrian Darts Open after suffering a trapped nerve in his back.

The 39-year-old has since undergone treatment but has not recovered sufficiently to travel to Scotland to take part in Night 14.

The net result is that Price will remain in seventh position, with his hopes of making the Play-Offs suffering a further hit.
