Rob Cross is through to the Semi-Finals at the World Matchplay but he was pushed all the way by Stephen Bunting.

Cross spoke after his 16-14 win and commended his opponent calling him a real credit to himself and an incredible player.

Despite that though he said he used his Premier League form to edge through and that he’s daring to dream of the title now.

“Stephen was incredible, he was a real credit to himself up there but thankfully I managed to hold tight and come on strong at the end,” said Cross.

“Towards the end of the game I managed to find my Premier League form and I think I showed nerves of steel.

“I’ve learnt a lot over the last two years and I’m starting to get there now. Hopefully there will be a happy ending for me here.”
