Top seed Stephen Bunting battled back from losing the first two sets to beat Rick Hofstra 5-2 and reach the BDO World Darts Championships semi-finals.

The 28-year-old from St Helens survived a scare to win through to his first last-four appearance at the Lakeside, where he will face Robbie Green.

Lakeside World Darts ChampionshipBunting squandered a host of set-darts as Dutchman Hofstra took a commanding lead in their quarter-final clash, but “The Bullet” fought back to set up his semi-final against Green, 39, who beat fellow Englishman Tony Eccles 5-2 in the first quarter-final.

Martin Adams reached the last eight with a 4-1 victory over Ross Montgomery. Adams took a 2-0 lead but Scot Montgomery hit back in the next before the 57-year-old Englishman closed out the victory at Frimley Green.

The three-time champion has returned to form after a difficult 2013, which saw him lose in the first round and will face Jan Dekker in the last eight after the Dutchman beat Belgian Geert de Vos 4-2.

The winner of that game will meet either James Wilson or Alan Norris, who meet in Friday’s other quarter-final, for a place in the final.

In the women’s tournament, Denmark’s Ann Louise Peters beat Wales’ Julie Gore 2-0 to reach the semi-finals, where she will face England’s Deta Hedman, who beat German Irina Armstrong 2-0.

England’s Lisa Ashton beat Aileen de Graaf 2-1 to win through to the quarter-finals. - BBC Website
