Phil Taylor

Mensur Suljovic



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.


Terrific session that for Taylor. Two breaks of throw firmly putting him in control. He's four legs away from a Matchplay quarter final with Mervyn King

Taylor on thrown at the start of the third session. He'll want this finishes quickly

Commentators have said Taylor has only ever lost 7 games in the Matchplay. Ludicrous

Slow start to the eleventh leg. Both players feeling their way back in

8-3. Fantastic 116 checkout from Taylor after a poor leg. Suljovic must feel that was a chance missed in that leg with Taylor only finding form in those last 3 darts

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

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

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

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

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