Anderson vs Dobey

BoyleSports World Grand Prix (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

White will now play Chris Dobey, who reached his third televised quarter-final with a superb 3-1 victory over two-time World Champion Gary Anderson.

The Scot, a former Dublin finalist, defied a showpiece 134 checkout from Dobey to claim the opening set 3-2, only to see the Newcastle youngster come from 2-1 down to level in the second.

Dobey then finished 90, 60 and 110 to win the third without reply, before securing his last eight place by claiming set four with a 3-1 scoreline.

“I think my overall performance was pretty good and I’m delighted to have won,” said Dobey. “I knew I had the game to beat Gary and I had to keep my cool, and it’s up there with my best performances on stage.

“It means a lot to me. This is a great competition to be in and I like the double-start format – I think it suits my game. I’m not here to make the numbers up, I’m in it to win it but I’m not going to look any further forward than the next game.”

The second round concludes on Wednesday with the remaining four matches, headlined by the clash between World Matchplay champion Rob Cross and reigning Lakeside Champion Glen Durrant.

Former World Grand Prix finalists Dave Chisnall and Peter Wright will play Stephen Bunting and Jermaine Wattimena respectively, while UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall is up against Danny Noppert.
