Ian Poulter is paired with Rory McIlroy for the afternoon fourballs on the second day of the Ryder Cup.

Ian Poulter has been paired with Rory McIlroy in the anchor fourball match on day two of the Ryder Cup in Chicago.

The pairings for the afternoon were announced with some foursomes still out on the course and the McIlroy-Poulter duo is arguably the pick of the bunch.

It will be the first time that world number one McIlroy is not joined on the course by usual teammate Graeme McDowell, who has been left out.

Sergio Garcia and Luke Donald resume their partnership from yesterday's foursomes, while for the Americans Tiger Woods returns after missing out this morning.

Day two fourballs:

6.05pm: D Johnson/Kuchar vs. Colsaerts/Lawrie
6.20pm: Watson/Simpson vs. Rose/Molinari
6.35pm: Woods/Stricker vs. Garcia/Donald
6.50pm: Dufner/Johnson vs. McIlroy/Poulter
