Trump puts Maguire’s fire out

Neil Robertson and John Higgins are locked at 4-4 in an intriguing quarter final. Robertson raced into a 3-1 lead but Higgins drew on all his experience to gain parity and tomorrow’s final 2 session will be gripping viewing.

David Gilbert is just 3 frames away from a Crucible semifinal spot as he leads Kyren Wilson by a 10-6 scoreline. Gilbert fired in a magnificent century and a number of frame winning contributions and has the semi final in his sights.

Gary Wilson leads Ali Carter 9-7 going into thier final session tomorrow afternoon. Wilson who has been in excellent recent form has a firm grip on this match but will fear a Carter backlash tomorrow and has to be switched on from the word go.
