Deeping’s Martin Adams cruised into the last eight of the BDO World Darts Championships on Thursday with a 4-1 victory over Ross Montgomery.
Three-time winner ‘Wolfie struggled to find his best form as he beat 14th seed at Lakeside – but warned the rest that his best is yet to come.
Unseeded Adams eased to victory in the first two sets and then took advantage of some porr finishing his Scottish opponent to race from 2-1 up to a decisive 4-1.
His best moment was a brilliant 141 finish in his third-set success.
Adams now plays sixth seed Jan Dekker in the quarter-finals on Friday evening (January 10, 6.15pm) as he chases his fourth world title.
He said: “I can certainly play better. I threw some rubbishy scores, but I plugged away and kept trying to put Ross under pressure.
“Luckily for me he struggled with his doubles just as I did in the first round. You get days like that in darts.
“I’m confident I can keep winning as I’m sure I can play better. I’m very relaxed which helps.
“Jan is a very strong player though so it will be tough for me tomorrow.”
Adams has already disposed of David Cameron and Tony O’Shea at the Frimley Green showpiece.
