Rob Cross picked up a vital win at UK Open Qualifying 4 in Wigan.

The world champion had lost six competitive matches in a row. The unfortunate run spanned from his Masters exit to a 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Simon Whitlock on Thursday in the Premier League. But Cross secured a 6-3 victory over Christopher Bent in the last 128 on Friday. He needs to continue his run to earn money in a UK Open qualifier for the first time this year.

Jose Antonio Justicia Perales will not be reunited with Adrian Lewis. He lost 6-3 against Kim Huybrechts. Jackpot won by the same scoreline against Jerry Hendriks. Daryl Gurney mustered a 6-4 success over Devon Petersen, and Raymond van Barneveld beat Michael Dawson 6-1. James Wade came out on top in an 11-leg thriller against Diogo Portela. UK Open Qualifying 2 finalist Darren Webster, Corey Cadby and Kyle Anderson were among the casualties.
