The Middlesbrough man trailed 10-5 and 12-8 but hit back to edge the contest.

Glen Durrant staged a thrilling comeback to beat Vincent Van Der Voort 18-16 and book his place in a second consecutive World Matchplay semi-final.

The Middlesbrough man trailed 10-5 and 12-8 but hit back to edge the Dutchman, seizing his first chance with a 75 checkout in the extra-time leg.

Durrant will face Dimitri Van Den Bergh in the last four on Saturday after the Belgian scored a superb 16-12 win over Adrian Lewis.

The underdog raced into a commanding 10-4 lead but Lewis clawed his way back to within three legs and threatened to complete a remarkable comeback.

From 14-8, Lewis reeled off three straight legs but a 66 checkout eventually confirmed Van Den Bergh's place in his first televised semi-final.
