Wilson and Selby reached the UK Championship on the 16th

World Championship runner-up Kieran Wilson bounced back from an early deficit to beat Kurt Muffle 6-3 to reach the last 16 of the UK Championship.

A break of 70 in the opening frame helped the Muffles take a 2-0 lead, but Wilson responded well, scoring 132 at Milton Keynes.

The intervals of 54 and 62 helped to pull back five frames in a row. Mufflin, who scored 78 in the eighth frame, put an end to the rot, but Wilson secured the victory with 99 breaks.

“I think I played well,” Wilson told the BBC.

“I did not make much of a mistake from 2-0 down. I had a little bit of luck in the second frame and then went a little scoring fast.

“To punch Kurt the way I did, because he does it to a lot of players, and yes, I’m happy with that performance.”

Two-time winner Mark Selby also had to come from behind to beat Hossain Wafa 6-2.

A blue and a break of 55 before Selby reached the fourth frame helped Wafa take a 2-1 lead, which lasted more than an hour, regaining level terms at mid-session.

Selby won the next two frames without scoring a single point and took the seventh frame in black.

The match between Jack Lisovsky and Suu Kyi was more free, and Lisovsky won more than 50 of the seven intervals 6-2, while Joe Perry went 5-2 and defeated Joe O’Connor 6-5.

Perry snatched the ninth frame after needing a snooker, winning the last two games at 71 and 73 intervals.
