Duff denies Ashton in tie-break thriller, Jenkins eases past Anderson as World Seniors Darts Championship continues

Andy Jenkins and Neil Duff are the next players into the Last 16 at the World Seniors Darts Championship after two contrasting ties to begin the afternoon session at the Circus Tavern.

Jenkins is one of the only players in the tournament who still plays regularly on the PDC Challenge Tour and winning titles so will be one of the favourites for the title this weekend and he showed his credentials early doors.

He breezed past Bob Anderson in a 3-0 sets win only allowing 'The Limestone Cowboy' one leg in the final set.

With only one 180 in the tie, there was not the trademark finger point from Anderson who lost out 3-0 in the end with 'Rocky' leaving double six from 112 and pinning it. Next up is Richie Howson who saw off David Cameron last night.

While it was the reigning WDF World Champion who produced one of the matches of the tournament so far in a high quality affair with four-time World Champion, 'The Lancashire Rose' Lisa Ashton.

Sealing it in a tense tie-break, Ashton produced one of her best performances on the big stage in some time but lost out to 'The Duffman' 3-2 in sets.

Close throughout, Ashton took the opening set 3-1 on double five before Duff levelled the game up after Ashton missed darts to hold through with a superb 97 checkout.

Duff missed the 161 for 1-1 in the next set but returned to level it up before taking the six out of the previous seven legs to go 2-1 up but firing in two double eight's to take it to a decider, Duff then bust 76 which could have put him well clear one away but the match was extended by a few legs before Duff eventually prevailed on double nine after previously missing six for the match.
