Taylor advances to face Mervyn King in the quarter final. Up next is Gary Anderson v Terry Jenkins. I'm covering that so relocate to that feed for all the action. See you there.

Taylor avg 101.11, 48% on the doubles. A very solid performance from the Power this evening. Suljovic averaged over 97 and was well beaten.

Taylor wins with a bit to spare in the end. The 2nd session was the difference in this match. A great spell from Taylor there where he picked up 4 legs to Mensur's 1 was crucial

Game shot! D4 for Taylor to win this match on 68. Suljovic made a hash of a 67 finish and he was punished

180!! Taylor turning the screw. Doesn't want to have to hold his throw he wants this finished

One away. Phil Taylor moves 10-5 up with D16 at the second attempt. He can almost touch the quarter final now

Great darts again from Suljovic who gets another big finish, this time going 1 better than before with a 104 to claw the score back once more. 9-5 now

Hold. Huge opportunity for Suljovic who required 34 but hit 10 when he wanted 6 to leave his trusty D14. Two misses at D12 were followed by Taylor scraping D6 with his last dart to checkout 12. Two away

Ton plus checkout for Suljovic. 103 finished with a confident D14 to reduce the deficit by holding throw. 8-4

Taylor has been lethal on D20 after an initial wobble on tops
