Anderson through to darts world semis

Two-time winner Gary Anderson is through to the semi-finals of the PDC World Championship after coming from behind to beat Dirk Van Duijvenbode at Alexandra Palace.

Anderson, the champion in 2015 and 2016, lost the opening set before surging to a 5-1 victory, averaging 101.07.

The Scot set up a last-four meeting with the winner of the Michael Van Gerwen-Dave Chisnall contest taking place on Friday evening.

“That was good,” Anderson told Sky Sports.

“First set Dirk went off like he did, and I played actually alright – I went ‘here we go’. But I stuck in.”

Asked if we were seeing the Anderson of 2015 and 2016, the 50-year-old said: “Not quite yet. It’s getting there.

“The 140s are coming good now. Still a few mistakes, but happy.”

The other match of the afternoon session saw Stephen Bunting defeat Krzysztof Ratajski 5-3 to move into the last four of the competition for the first time.

Bunting’s opponent in the last four will be either Gerwyn Price or Daryl Gurney.
