YOU can beat a bit of Bully!

Mark Webster took the Bull by the horns on Monday afternoon to maintain his superb run at the 2016 William Hill World Darts Championship at the Alexandra Palace.

Webster followed up his 3-0 defeat of Mick McGowan with an impressive straight sets victory over 11th seed Terry “The Bull” Jenkins.

Two-time semi-finalist Webster, seeded number 22 for the tournament, continued his recent revival as he dropped just four legs against veteran star Jenkins.

The Denbigh left-hander, who reached the semi-finals of the World Grand Prix in October and the last-eight of the Grand Slam of Darts the following month, set up a third round clash with Alan Norris, who enjoyed a 4-1 success against Joe Murnan.

"I played steady darts and I'm pleased to be through," said Webster, the 2008 Lakeside world champion.

"It didn't look brilliant but I got the job done. I've been working hard on getting my game right for a while now.

“The next match is a real opportunity for me or Alan and hopefully I'll take it."

Webster will take on Norris tonight (Wednesday) and the contest will be the second of three matches on stage.

The winner of the Webster-Norris encounter will meet Phil Taylor or Jelle Klaasen in the quarter-finals on New Year’s Day.
