Joe Cullen and Dave Chisnall won some exciting matches as the quarterfinal line-up was completed at the World Grand Prix on a dramatic Friday night in Coventry
Gerwyn Price and Jeffrey de Zwaan joined Cullen and Chisnall to advance to Saturday night’s quarter-finals at the Ricoh Arena as the quartet continued their challenges to win the title from defending champion Michael van Gerwen
Cullen and Jonny Clayton served up a treat in a dramatic final game of the night, ending with Cullen winning a final leg decider to reach the quarter-finals for the first time
The Yorkshireman looked like he was cruising, averaging just under 100 on his way to a two-set lead as he lost just one of seven legs
However, Clayton came back roaring, winning the deciding stage of the third set before winning the fourth set 3-1 to send the fight to a deciding set.
CULLEN THE BORDER!

An unpredictable final set saw all five innings won against a pitch, with a timely 180 from Cullen in the decider giving him the start for a 74 control which he finished in two darts
World number 21’s next mission will see him face off against Chisnall, who also went through a five-set thriller against Ryan Joyce
Chisnall survived seven missed match darts as he recovered from 2-0 to defeat Joyce 3-2
Newbie Joyce continued his relentless double-16 strike as he took a two-set lead, but in the deciding third set inning he missed five darts at the top and two at double ten for the game, allowing Chisnall to go back the competition
Two-time World Grand Prix finalist Chisnall seized the opportunity, leading the fourth set by one stage before winning three consecutive rounds at the decider to seal his passage in the final eight

The world number three dominated the contest from the start, averaging 9,542 and hitting over two tons to reach the last eight for the second time in three years, losing just three legs in the tie
Huybrechts fought to the end, but couldn’t live with the scoring power of the Welshman, who will face De Zwaan on Saturday night
De Zwaan also did in straight sets, blowing Gabriel Clemens to advance to his first televised quarter-final in almost a year
A late substitute for Stephen Bunting on the pitch, De Zwaan enjoyed back-to-back triumphs losing just two innings in the contest, sealing victory in style with a ten-dart inning
