GLEN DURRANT stormed past World Champion Peter Wright in a thriller and now admits the Matchplay is “there for the taking”.
The Boro battler had a dream night booking his place in the quarters with an 11-8 win over Snakebite and Middlesbrough avoided relegation in the Championship.
Now Duzza has got his sights on glory at the Marshall Arena after reeling off six successive leg wins on the way to a cracking win.
“The draw opened up and I’m sure that Peter felt he had a big chance of winning this.
He wasn’t at his best tonight.
“I was going for treble 18s and I wouldn’t normally do. But wow I’m just so happy to get through that fighting qualities again.
“At eight-each they are the sort of games I’ve going on to win at the moment. Peter was nowhere near his A game.
“It didn’t feel like a great game but I was just hoping my doubling was going to help me out in the end and I’m absolutely delighted.
“I just beat the World Champion, Michael’s out and Gerwyn Price,
it’s there for the taking. Hopefully that’s me.”
