Stevens canters to easy victory
Joe Delaney
Delaney was never at the races
Matthew Stevens took little time to win the three frames he needed for victory against Joe Delaney and book himself a place in the last 16 at the Crucible.

Stevens opened up with a 48 and only needed a couple of visits each in the 11th and 12th for his win.

Irishman Delaney, who had qualified for the first time, had a mountain to climb after falling 7-2 behind.

Nerves and several fouls cost him dear in the first session, with Stevens rarely having to hit top gear.


Matthew Stevens 10-2 Joe Delaney:
73-21 80-6 (60) 56-15 74-41 73-25 (69) 1-73 97-20 (53) 71-25 64-69 (55 Stevens) 63-6 68-7 (65) 78-2
