THERE will be an all-St Helens quarter finals of the Cazoo World Darts Championship after Michael Smith beat Joe Cullen 4-1 and Stephen Bunting toppled fifth seed Luke Humphries by the same score .

Fourth seed Smith was on fire at the Alexandra Palace fourth round tie to progress into the last eight.

Windle-based thrower Bunting averaged 99.43, hit seven maximums and had a 46 percent rate on the doubles to stay in control of the game against Humphries.


The pair have a day off now and return for the afternoon session on New Year's Day at Alexandra Palace.
