Noppert ends Lewis's European Championship hopes, Hughes edges past West

Danny Noppert is through to the final day of action at the International Darts Open and in the process has ended Adrian Lewis's European Championship hopes.

Noppert produced a superb display to dispel the returning 'Jackpot' who tested positive for Coronavirus and returned after a period of self isolation.

He averaged 103.4 with four 180's and 66% on the doubles as the Dutchman's form continues in a brilliant couple of months which has seen him land a World Cup of Darts debut for the Netherlands.

Also through is Jamie Hughes who saw off Steve West in a 6-4 win. 'Simply' put himself inside the reckoning for a European Championship spot and could do enough in 23rd place currently.

But it is 'Yozza' who is through after edging through 6-4 punishing 11 missed darts at doubles with a high checkout of 150.
