Three more players are into the final day of action in Copenhagen with Jonny Clayton, Simon Whitlock and Dave Chisnall all through as the Danish Darts Open continues.
Clayton had a tough test in his first tie of the tournament with the Welshman playing both Per Laursen and the crowd due to him being the home favourite and in the end he was up to the task.
He ended up going 3-1 down against the experienced Dane to level up at 3-3. It was nip and tuck right till the end; with Laursen missing one match dart to claim the victory but it was Clayton who completed the job and averts a shock defeat.

Chisnall eased past Krzysztof Ratajski in the next tie averaging just less than 100 at 98.9 in a 6-2 win over ‘The Polish Eagle’. This victory was possible due to 55 percent on the doubles for the St Helens ace as he showed this to be an asset as well as his scoring in this match.
Whitlock finally saw off Nathan Aspinall in a more close affair between the duo with ‘The Wizard’ just edging out his opponent in a 6-4 victory. It was a match that included some brilliant scoring with eight 180’s from the pair.
This is despite the averages only just being in the early 90’s but at the end of proceedings, it was Whitlock who moved through in successful fashion against the UK Open champion.
