The duo are regarded as two of the game's brightest young talents and have set the tone for a healthy and growing rivalry on the table following a number of memorable encounters in recent years.

The left-handed potters cannot be separated in the league table and will go head-to-head in an effective shoot-out to determine which of them will advance to the end of season play-offs.

Trump enters the fixture riding on the crest of a wave following a memorable week in China, concluding on Sunday, which saw him leapfrog Mark Selby to become the new world number one, before going on the lift the International Championship title.

The Bristolian sensation, however, has not had things all his own way in this season's Premier League and is facing a make-or-break battle, knowing that a win will carry him into the play-offs, while a defeat will signal elimination.

After having his 5-1 rout of Stephen Lee declared void due to Lee's suspension, Trump recorded a 4-2 victory over Peter Ebdon, but that was followed by a narrow defeat to John Higgins last time around, leaving his dreams of a maiden league title hanging in the balance.

Trump's label as world number one is likely to become an added motivation for opponents to knock him off his perch and take a potential scalp, something which Allen will be hoping to do this evening. 

Debutant Allen has also enjoyed a landmark year in his flourishing career as he picked up his maiden major title at the World Open to secure his place in this event for the first time.

The quick-fire 'Pistol' has compiled two points from his two group stage matches so far, losing to John Higgins before edging past Peter Ebdon.

He will be out to avenge his 6-5 defeat to Trump in their epic Quarter-Final in Chengdu less than a week ago and knows that only a win would be sufficient to seal his progress unless he can compile more century breaks than Trump should the game end in a draw, given that the duo are locked on equal points.   

They have met a total of 15 times in previous major competition since 2008, and it's Trump who holds the slender advantage having taken eight wins to the Ulsterman's six as well as one draw.

Of the 100 frames they have contested, they are separated by just two, with Trump claiming 51 to Allen's 49, highlighting the close proximity of the pair.

The bookmakers make Trump the 6/5 favourite to take maximum points, with Allen on offer at 21/10. The 3-3 draw is a realistic 11/5 chance also with Bet365.

The match begins at around 9.15pm BST and will be streamed live over a total of six frames from The Dome, Doncaster.
