Anderson sets up Cross showdown after averaging almost 105 in Searle win as clinical Clayton impresses in Barry win

Gary Anderson continues to impress in his second week back on the European Tour and after a poor Dutch Darts Championship, he is into the Last 16 at the Belgian Darts Open.

Facing practice partner, Ryan Searle who he credited post-match as giving him his love for darts back. It was a 6-2 win for 'The Flying Scotsman' who averaged close to 105 in a statement win.

This included a clinical display on the outer ring with 6/9 including a 140 checkout and an absolutely incredible leg that was very practice-like.

This featured four 180s in a leg, but Anderson took it in 12-darts which saw him en route to a 4-1 lead as he showed some of his best darts on the big stage in a while.

Also through was Jonny Clayton who sealed a seventh straight win over Keane Barry reeling off five consecutive legs in the process to claim it 6-3 with an average of just over a ton.

The turning point was at 3-3 with Clayton producing an epic 161 checkout with Barry wiring 124 for the hold of throw and Clayton took every leg from there.

Martin Schindler prior to Clayton winning also moved through with 'The Wall' putting up a barrier to 'Superchin' Daryl Gurney's progress in a 6-1 win as the German took down an out-of-sorts Northern Irishman.
