Match level, 2 sets all Fifth Set - Smith 1:0 Lennon Just when we’re writing Smith off, he comes back with a maximum and a break of throw to start the set - starts the next leg with a maximum too...

SIX PERFECT FOR SMITH!

Match level, 2 sets all Fifth Set - Smith 2:0 Lennon Stops at six perfect for Smith, Lennon not too far behind too - has a dart a bull for the leg, but Smith holds on. A leg away from the match again.

Match level, 2 sets all Fifth Set - Smith 2:1 Lennon Couple of low scores from Lennon looks to have let Smith in, but then he pulls out a maximum and finishes off 65 to hold.

SMITH WINS 3 SETS TO 2! Fifth Set - Smith 3:1 Lennon Slight anti climax at the end, as Lennon didn’t ever really get into the leg, Smith did enough to hold and win the match.

Final stats - Smith just about passes a tricky test, but he needs to sharpen up a bit if he wants to go further.

Next up, Simon Whitlock v Martin Schindler. Back with that shortly...

Couple of vids for you whilst we wait - Smith hitting that 150...

And from earlier, the other Smith (Bernie) winning the prelim match:

Whitlock and Schindler on stage, just warming up. Whitlock is 48! That seems surprising, but I don’t know why...
