Last Updated: 11/01/19 11:06am
Glenn Durrant survived a nervous match to progress into the BDO World Championship quarter-finals.
The defending champion eventually beat Scott Baker 4-3 but not without significant concern.
Durrant, the BDO champion in 2017 and 2018, roared into a three-set lead in a match he was expected to comfortably come through.
But the unfancied Baker recovered to make the score 3-3 and force a deciding set. Durrant regained his poise to claim the decider 3-1 and move a step closer to retaining his title.
Another former BDO champion, Scott Mitchell, is also into the last eight after beating Krzysztof Kciuk 4-0.
