TWO-TIME world champion Gary Anderson made short work of Devon Petersen this afternoon (Wednesday) to reach the quarter-finals of the PDC World Championships.

The Musselburgh-born darts man sealed a 4-0 win minutes ago to secure a place in the last eight of the competition at London’s Alexandra Palace.

Petersen, seeded number 29 at the competition, had no answer to Anderson, who won the tournament in 2015 and 2016.

Fifty-year-old Anderson dropped just four legs on his way to the whitewash win and will now play either Dirk van Duijvenbode or Glen Durrant on Friday.

Dutchman van Duijvenbode has already knocked out fifth seed Rob Cross, with Durrant, a three-time winner of the BDO World Championships, defeating Diogo Portela and Danny Baggish on his way to the last 16.

As well as winning the competition twice, Anderson also reached the final in 2011 and 2017.

Defending champion Peter Wright has already been knocked out of the competition, losing 4-3 to Gabriel Clemens in the third round.
