Both players know each other well, Maguire most notably having defeated Cahill in the last 16 of the World Championship four-and-a-half years ago.

The match will be played over the best of seven frames with the winner meeting either Hammad Miah or Sam Craigie in the next round.

Cahill booked his place in Belfast with victory in the qualifying stages held at Ponds Forge, Sheffield, last week.

He eased past Duane Jones, winning 4-1 after losing the opening frame.

Having got back on terms, a break of 65 put Cahill 2-1 in front before he closed out victory in comfortable fashion.
