12 darts each, neither man on a finish

Zoran down to 106 after 15

Zoran gets a first leg break of throw... 20 darts it took. Buckle up, this could be a long one

Maximum to lead of the 2nd leg from Brown. More trebles there than in the previous leg

He's first to a finish, despite a bounce out

Lerchbacher had a chance to hold on a 108 finish there. Just couldn't convince himself the 19, T19 combo he hit left him D16. Brown todays up.

Brown looking at tops... round the board and leaves himself 5. He's back though, Zoran was on 146. 1, D2 seals the deal.

Both mes struggling to find the big number they need to set up a double, but finally, Brown finds D4 to clinch the opening set.

That was a pretty dry chew of a set. The positive for Brown is he's one it fairly comfortably despite not really hitting any sort of form
