Glen Durrant claimed a nervy deciding leg victory over Gabriel Clemens coming from 3-0 down and 7-4 down to book his place in the Grand Slam of Darts Quarter-Finals.

Durrant said it was a very huge game and very emotional and it was overall a fantastic win for him. He also spoke about his bottle and said that he showed it and his fight so is delighted to claim victory.

He will now play Michael Smith in the next round after he defeated Daryl Gurney in a 10-7 win and after they exchanged words previously, they will get to face off.

“It’s a super win,” admitted Durrant. “It was a huge game and very emotional, and it’s a fantastic win for me.

“I was never in front until the last dart but I’ve got real fight, determination and bottle and I’m a great match player. I’m not the biggest scorer but I fight and I’m delighted to win.

“I’m not starting as quickly as I’d like to so maybe I have to look at that, but I found something inside me and I knew when it got to nine legs each that I could take my chance.”
