Adrian Lewis and James Wade are the headline acts on Monday evening in the last session of the PDC World Championship before the tournament takes its Christmas break.

Third seed Lewis takes on Dutchman Vincent van der Voort in the last of three second-round matches on the night, likely to be a rapid affair with both players wasting little time throwing their arrows.

Lewis lifted the title at Alexandra Palace in 2011 and 2012 and enjoyed a comfortable introduction to this year's tournament, averaging 95.26 in a 3-0 win over Dennis Smith in the first round.

Van der Voort prevailed 3-1 in a low-quality clash with Matt Clarke and Sky Bet make him 8/1 to upset Lewis over best-of-seven sets.

Sixth seed Wade is up against fellow Englishman Andy Smith in the opening match on stage at 7pm.

Wade, a three-time semi-finalist, needed a great escape in his first-round encounter with Darren Webster, who missed six match darts in the fourth set before going down 3-2.

'Pieman' Smith's 3-1 success against Steve Brown was his first win on television for three years and he is 11/2 to repeat the trick against Wade.

Mervyn King faces Ricky Evans with both players aiming to build on 3-0 victories in the first round.

King, who reached the last-four in 2009, is 4/11 favourite. The winner will play Lewis or Van der Voort in the last 16.

The players can then put away their darts and enjoy some turkey and mince pies until the tournament resumes at 12.30pm on December 27 with the final match of the second round, Justin Pipe against Devon Petersen.
