Live Snooker on Thursday: Championship League 2017 Group Four - Day Two preview and order of play

Mark Williams and Barry Hawkins aim to rubber-stamp their places in the Group Four play-offs, while Mark Allen bids to get his first points on the board when the action resumes in Coventry on Thursday.

Two-time World Champion Williams and 2016 Masters runner-up Hawkins are locked level at the top of the table having taken three points from a possible four at the Ricoh Arena on Wednesday.



The duo are in pole position to secure a top four finish and a place in the group Semi-Finals with the view to advancing to the lucrative Winner's Group.

Meanwhile, multiple ranking event winner Allen enters Day Two rooted to the foot of the table following three straight defeats and requires a miraculous turnaround if he is to avert elimination from the internet-streamed invitational.

Former World Champion Shaun Murphy and Welsh ace Ryan Day both claimed two wins apiece from their three fixtures on Wednesday and are aiming to hold down their positions in the top four come the end of the round-robin phase.

In-form Day is the only player to have started out in Group One still standing in the competition and notably lost out in the final of both Group One and Group Two.

World number seven Neil Robertson will be out to pick up his form after claiming just one win from his three fixtures on Wednesday - that coming over Mark Williams.

Robertson is joined on one point by former Shanghai Masters champion Kyren Wilson - who is out to warm up for his Masters debut this weekend in the best possible fashion.

The action gets underway from 11am GMT, with all matches to be contested over the best of five frames at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
