For the winner, the final remaining place in the 2012 Premier League play-offs will be there for the taking, while the loser will join Mark Selby and Shaun Murphy in bowing out of the competition in the star-studded Group A.

Both Ding and Robertson head into the fixture on four points having taken two wins from their three matches to date, but crucially, Ding boasts a superior frame difference (two ahead of Robertson), meaning a draw would be enough for him to advance.

Ding has been rock-steady in this year's Premier League with hard fought wins over Selby and Murphy, but unusually, he is yet to compile a century break in the event this season.

The Championship League and Welsh Open champion reached the final of last year's Premier League and will be aiming to go one step closer to doing so again this time around by securing the point he needs to qualify.

Left-hander Robertson began the campaign with a 5-1 rout of Selby and followed it up with a 4-2 victory over Murphy, but his humiliating 6-0 whitewash defeat at the hands of Stuart Bingham could prove costly should he fail to surpass three frames tonight.

Australia's number one has also not been at his clinical break-building best this season, but nonetheless has produced some fine tactical snooker and will look to outwit Ding in order to leapfrog him into the all-important second spot later today.

The duo are two of the snooker's greatest match players and possess polished all-round games, meaning a thrilling encounter is in store for the bumper North East crowd.  

They have met a total of nine times in previous major competition since 2005, and Robertson holds a slender advantage having taken five wins including a 6-0 whitewash in this event two years ago.

The bookmakers struggle to separate the pair, but place Robertson as marginal favourite at 6/4 as opposed to Ding at 13/8. The 3-3 draw is a realistic 11/5 chance also with Bet365.

The match begins at 7.30pm BST and will be streamed live over a total of six frames from the Spennymoor Leisure Centre, Durham.
