MARTIN SCHINDLER headlined the six Host Nation Qualifiers for the European Darts Trophy on Thursday night.

The German World Cup representative ensured his spot on stage at the Lokhalle in Gottingen for this weekend's European Tour event where he will take on Luke Woodhouse.

Schindler is joined in the 13th and final European Tour event of the year by ProTour semi-finalist Gabriel Clemens, who will play Brendan Dolan.

Starring on the continent for the sixth time this year, Robert Marijanovic will meet Nordic and Baltic Qualifier Marko Kantele.

Maik Langendorf will face Jelle Klaasen, Steffen Siepmann will meet Jeffrey de Zwaan and Christian Bunse will take on Richard North.

The European Darts Trophy is the final tournament before the qualification cut-off for the Unibet European Championship, with eight places in the 32-player field still on offer going into this weekend's event.
