Joe Chaney booked his place in the Quarter-Finals of the 2019 BDO World Trophy in Blackburn as the Tennessee-based star completed a highly convincing 5-0 victory over Dutchman Willem Mandigers on Saturday evening.

Speaking to the BDO media after the victory, Chaney was pleased to keep his run going, as he recorded back-to-back wins on TV for the first time in his career.

“I’m very happy”, said a victorious Joe Chaney. “I feel a little unfortunate for Willem, I was watching him warming up, and he was playing really well. He didn’t play very well on the stage, and I didn’t practise very well, but I played pretty well on the stage. 

The format for the Quarter-Final goes up to the best of 11 legs, and Chaney is very much familiar with a race to six. “I’ve been practising a race to six”, admitted Chaney. “A race to six is good with me, definitely.

On the prospect of facing either Jim Wiliams or Scott Taylor tomorrow, Chaney added: “I hate to say it, but I’d rather play Jim Wiliams, I’ve played him once before, and Scott Taylor, I’ve never played him.
