Welshman Williams will be hoping to continue his fine start to the ranking season with a win in his opener at the Barbican Centre.
He has been tipped by many to challenge for the prestigious UK title this week and is capable of dismantling opponents with his clinical potting, hence the nickame - The Welsh Potting Machine.
Leicester cueist Jogia won through the qualifiers to appear at the event and has enjoyed a good run in the PTC events this year.
The pair are yet to meet in a major competition and are likely to produce a highly entertaining match on Monday.
The bookmakers make Williams the inevitable favourite at 1/7 with Bet365, with Jogia the 11/2 underdog with Bet365.
The match begins at 7pm and will be streamed live over the best of eleven frames from the Barbican Centre, York.
