Friday's Sport: Fallen giants tussle at Fratton Park

Two former Premier League clubs take the spotlight on Friday evening as Derby County and Portsmouth clash in League One at Fratton Park.

There's also top-class tennis, snooker and darts action as the weekend looms into view once more.

OddsPortsmouth 11/8, Draw 12/5, Derby 19/10

It is a match between fifth and sixth in League One with both sides having genuine ambitions of promotion to the Championship this season.

Pompey have endured a decade below the second tier of English football, but have made a decent start this season under Danny Cowley. Both of these clubs have gone through some financial turmoil but, like their hosts, the Rams are doing well of late under former Rotherham boss Paul Warne. 

Both sides are unbeaten in their last four league matches and it's 12/5 they play out a draw to extend those runs.

Grand Slam: Barney bids to keep rolling back the years

OddsRaymond van Barneveld 3/1, Gerwyn Price 1/4

Gerwyn Price and Raymond van Barneveld will renew their rivalry in the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam of Darts.

Price – the defending champion - lost out to the 2012 winner in the group stage in a final-leg decider despite the Welsh ace averaging 106.

Barney - 55 - rolled back the years to reach the last eight in a TV event for the first time since returning to the sport last February, defying a 101 average from Simon Whitlock to prevail 10-8.

The five-time World Champion is 3/1 to end Price's reign as Grand Slam kingpin.

OddsDaniil Medvedev 12/5, Novak Djokovic 1/3 

Novak Djokovic's quest for a record-equalling sixth ATP Finals crown continues when he stares down Daniil Medvedev in Turin.

Djokovic is aiming to tie Roger Federer's record six titles at the event and felt he played 'very, very well' when seeing off Andrey Rublev 6-4, 6-1 to seal his progress from the group stage.

Djokovic leads the head-to-head with Medvedev 7-4 and the 35-year-old is 1/3 to extend that record further over his 28-year-old opponent, who is out of the reckoning after back-to-back defeats.

OddsSam Craigie 11/4, Mark Allen 2/7

All four quarter-final matches at the UK Championship will be played on Friday at the York Barbican, as the first of snooker's Triple Crown events reaches the business end.

Mark Allen has been a player in form of late and new trim-looking former Masters champion is 2/7 to take care of Sam Craigie when they get under way at 13:00.

Allen won six of the last seven frames when dispatching Kyren Wilson in the previous round and has already won the Northern Ireland Open this season.

Ronnie O'Sullivan needed only 90 minutes to dispatch Zhou Yuelong in the last-16, though the seven-time UK champion may face more of a test against Ding Junhui in the afternoon's other clash.
