Higgins and O’Sullivan, two of snooker’s all-time greats, will meet in the quarter-finals on Friday

John Higgins continued his return to form by knocking world number one Mark Selby out of the Coral Players Championship, his 6-4 victory setting up a showpiece match with Ronnie O’Sullivan.

Higgins and O’Sullivan, two of snooker’s all-time greats, will meet in the quarter-finals on Friday at 1 pm at the Preston Guild Hall (limited number of tickets still available. It’s a repeat of their 2005 Grand Prix final at the same venue, when Higgins won 9-2 with four consecutive centuries.

It has been a patchy season for  Wizard of Wishaw Higgins, with surprise early exits from several tournaments. But in recent weeks he has shown glimpses of his best, with runs to the quarter-finals of the Welsh Open and the semi-finals of last week’s Indian Open. And today’s win over Selby keeps his momentum going.
