Danny Noppert lit a fire under his UK Open hopes with a superb victory over Gary Anderson.

The Dutchman came into UK Open Qualifying 6 needing a run to at least the last 64 to make it to Minehead. After overcoming Zoran Lerchbacher, Noppie took on Friday’s winner in Wigan in the last 128. With everything on the line, the former Lakeside finalist stepped up. A 6-3 win sets up a last 64 meeting with Peter Hudson. Mark Webster is in with a shout as well. The former Lakeside champion beat Stefan Nilles 6-1 to join Noppert in the next round.

Meanwhile, Benito van de Pas’ awful form continues. Big Ben averaged just 77 in a 6-3 defeat to Steve Hine, who mustered a 79 average himself. Rob Cross was on form though, averaging 107.4 in a 6-0 thrashing of Paul Phillips. Corey Cadby averaged 103 as he beat James Richardson 6-1.
