Scott Mitchell came through a tough test against Leighton Bennett 3-1 in sets to move into the third round at the 2020 BDO World Championship.
Despite that, Mitchell spoke of his nerves of playing the young prospect and was full of praise for ‘Boom Boom’ admitting that it is incredible how good he is at his age.
“You should feel my heart beating. I was so nervous about this match. When I saw him return to 2-1 I was by no means reassured, luckily I could still finish it. ”
“Scotty Dog” was full of praise for his opponent who only turned 14 on New Years Eve: “Leighton did not play at all as someone of 14, rather as someone of 30. It’s incredible how good he is at such a young age. Fortunately I was able to beat him today, within a few years that may not happen. “
In the last sixteen, Mitchell will compete against Michael Unterbuchner. “First let me recover from this match. Of course my level will have to be raised, but we will look into that in the coming days. ”
