Aspinall survives match dart in deciding leg win over Meikle, set to face O'Connor in Hungarian Darts Trophy semi-final

The second semi-final is set at the Hungarian Darts Trophy with Nathan Aspinall set to face William O'Connor with the winner facing either Joe Cullen or Dave Chisnall in the final.

Aspinall denied Ryan Meikle who has had a superb weekend his maiden PDC ranking semi-final in a tie which was full of nervy drama as 'The Asp' survived a match dart in the form of a 170 checkout.

The crowd started to get ramped up which frustrated Aspinall who had to recompose himself and pin double 16 to move through.

This in a tie that Meikle looked the favourite in after going 5-3 up but bounceouts proved to be the issue as well as Aspinall getting better pinning a 121 checkout to break and force that decider. He moves through with a 99 average and five 180's.

Next will be O'Connor who moved into his second ever European Tour semi-final after a 6-4 victory over Jose de Sousa in a tie which saw him seal a mammoth comeback in doing so.

O'Connor broke to start the tie at 3-2 down but couldn't consolidate and De Sousa pinned double 12 to move 4-2 ahead only for O'Connor to hit back and pin double 13 for 4-4.

It was three on the spin as he hit 64 to break followed by an 81 checkout to seal it and conclude the comeback.
