STEPHEN Bunting is leading the World Darts Championships semi final against Robbie Green 4-1.
He is now two sets away from booking a place in tomorrow's final.
Bunting raced into an early two set lead, scoring heavily and being clinical with his doubles.
But the big man from Wallasey, nicknamed Kong, got a grip in taking the third.
However, Green let missed doubles at the start of the fourth set to hand the chance for the Newtown-based thrower to regained his confidence to wrap up the third leg and the set with a superb Shanghai finish.
Green twice dislodged his own darts and visibly lost his temper, but Bunting kept his cool in the hot-house of the Lakeside to take the fifth set for a 4-1 lead.
