Ruthless Peter Wright powered through to the BoyleSports Grand Slam of Darts quarter-finals in superb fashion alongside Dave Chisnall, Michael Smith and Glen Durrant on Wednesday.

Wright produced a relentless performance to see off Rob Cross 10-3 at the Aldersley Leisure Village, ending the world number two's hopes of a third televised title of 2019.

In-form Chisnall was another 10-3 winner as he too moved into the last eight in style, averaging 102 against Ryan Harrington as the qualifier's Wolverhampton debut came to an end on Wednesday.

Durrant shows his delight

Harrington had won through the qualifiers before wins over Danny Noppert and Wayne Warren saw him progress from Group F to reach the last 16 of a televised event for the first time, where he averaged 96 in defeat.

While Glen Durrant came back from 3-0 and 7-4 down to book his place in the quarter-finals for a second time in three years, after edging out Germany's Gabriel Clemens 10-9 in a thriller.

The second round concludes on Thursday with the remaining four matches, including reigning champion Gerwyn Price taking on Darren Webster.

World number one Michael van Gerwen meets Ian White, while an all-Scottish clash sees Gary Anderson play Robert Thornton and James Wade faces Adrian Lewis.
