Dave Chisnall reached the next round of the PDC Home Tour after winning Group Three.

The 2019 World Championship quarter-finalist clinched the group after a final game 5-1 win over Jonathan Worsley on Sunday night.

It completed three wins from three for the 39-year-old.

Chisnall recovered from 1-0 down in the final game (PA)

“You can’t think about how high you are in the group, you’ve just got to go and win.”

Chisnall went 1-0 down in the first leg but recovered to move 3-1 ahead, before sealing the final two to become the first of the higher ranked players to win.

Worsley added: “I struggled but Dave is a top guy and I’m glad he got through. I hope he goes on to win it now.”

World champion Peter Wright crashed out on Friday and world number three Gerwyn Price also exited the competition a day later.

On Sunday, Chisnall won his opening match against Scott Waites, playing on his landing at home in Halifax, 5-2 on day three of the competition.

Next, Jan Dekker’s recovery was not enough to beat Worsley. Dekker was 4-1 down but recovered to make  it 4-4 only for Worsley to take the final leg to win 5-4.

But Worsley suffered defeat in his next match when he slumped to a 5-1 loss to Waites.

Dekker returned to play Chisnall but fell apart and could not mount a comeback as he was whitewashed 5-0 and then suffered another defeat to Waites, losing 5-1 to fail to win a match.

“I wanted to play and watch the scores. It’s so hard to be on your own, I want to focus on my game but it’s really hard,” said Dekker. “You want to try so hard.”

On Monday four-time ladies world champion Lisa Ashton will play against Ross Smith, Mickey Mansell and Geert Nentjes.
