Thorton expecting tough Gurney test


Derry's Daryl Gurney will face Premier League star Robert Thornton in the last 32 of the William Hill World Championship, after the Scotsman won through his opening match last night.

The 3-time major champion Thornton was nowhere near his best, but still won 3-nil against Austrian Zoran Lerchbacher at London's Alexandra Palace.

He's expecting a tough test against Gurney...
