The momentum for the seeded players continues at the European Darts Matchplay with James Wade, Glen Durrant and Adrian Lewis all through to the final day.
Wade eased through in a 6-2 victory over Bradley Brooks. In typical Machine fashion, he averaged less than the youngster throughout the tie but ended up edging past ‘Bamm Bamm’ who himself showed some aggression in the tie.
Lewis on the other hand survived a late comeback from Dirk van Duijvenbode, but eased past ‘The Titan’ in the end also in a 6-2 victory. This continues the run of the seeded players claiming the victory.
His highest checkout en route was 138 and his doubling was the main difference with him hitting 60 percent.
Durrant on the other hand raced into the lead against Cody Harris but had to withstand a comeback from the Kiwi ace after being 4-0 up. He ended up winning 6-3 from 4-3 up though in the end to move through to the final day in a tough tie. Next up is Gerwyn Price or Simon Stevenson for ‘Duzza’.
