Wolverhampton’s Scott Baker progressed to the second round of the BDO World Darts Championships with a sensational win over Scotland’s Ross Montgomery. On the face of it, ‘The Boss’ was favourite heading into the contest, but after a confidence boosting year on the BDO circuit will be looking to a big performance on the Lakeside stage.
‘The Mod’ was lethal on tops as he took the first two sets with little resistance coming from Montgomery. The Scot has notoriously had tough draws on the BDO’s biggest stage, and he would once again fall at the first hurdle as Baker took the final set.
Montgomery would cling on to his dream for all five legs, pushing the less experienced Baker all the way. But the Wolverhampton man’s class would show as he took out a spectacular 103 to seal his place in the last 16.
