"I'm not a morning person" - Luke Littler admits struggling to get motivated for afternoon session matches at UK Open

Luke Littler has convincingly qualified for the quarter-finals of the UK Open. 'The Nuke' defeated Dave Chisnall 10-5 in the last sixteen and now meets Damon Heta.

“It would be unbelievable to win this title,” Littler admits in his post-match press conference, although he realises there's still work to be done before then. “I’m not thinking that far ahead though. I’m just taking it game by game."

The 17-year-old Englishman is again in the quarter-finals of a major after his final place at the last World Darts Championship. "I struggled to get over the line against Martin, but I think I played better tonight against Dave, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow now.”

If Littler wants to win the tournament, he will have to win three long matches on Sunday. "That will be new for me. I did play on the Pro Tour before, but those matches first to six so these games will be a little longer."

Littler also admits he struggles when playing in the afternoon session. "They're going to know now I'm not a morning person," he laughs. "I did struggle this morning."
