Chisnall, who struck five 180s, missed six darts to win the second set but the five-time World Champion failed to punish the world number eight before the 2013 finalist completed a one-sided win.

“That wasn’t Raymond up there, but you’ve just got to beat the man in front of you,” said Chisnall.

“It wasn’t pretty, I just kept making sure I beat Raymond’s score, but I’m happy with my night’s work and I’m pleased to be through to the quarter-finals of another TV event.

“I’ve saved my best game for the TV this year which isn’t a bad thing.

“I’ve come close here once before, maybe this year I can go one better.”
