Glen Durrant is through after surviving a brilliant fightback from Scott Baker in a game many said was the best of the tournament.

Durrant spoke afterwards and admitted that he was a beaten man at 3-3 so he doesn’t know how he squeezed through.

‘I was a beaten man at 3-3, he’s such a rhythm player and things were affecting me that I need to address and that was purely my fault. I just want to make it clear nothing to do with Scott’s fans, they were absolutely terrific,’ said Durrant.

‘There’s just something about a little bit of experience that I’ve been there before, I certainly wasn’t feeling great. I think Lady Luck was on my side.’

‘I’ve got to kick on, the beauty of it now is that we play everyday. I’ve had a lot of waiting around and watching others, now I’m straight back on tomorrow and that’ll take some beating that game.’
