Huntly darts favourite John Henderson is on the march in the PDC world championships.

The Highlander was in fine form as he comfortably defeated Englishman James Richardson 3-0, losing just three legs.

He could now play Welsh star Gerwyn 'The Iceman' Price, who is the second favourite behind champion Michael Van Gerwen to clinch the world title.

In front of a live Sky Sports audience on Thursday afternoon, 'Hendo' threw four maximums and averaged 93.34 in an impressive display.

He opened with a 180 which was matched by Richardson, and did look in danger of losing the first set when the Englishman went 2-1 up against the darts.

But helped by maximums in legs four and five. Henderson hit back to claim the set 3-2.

He was defeated in the opening leg of the second set with the darts, before going on to win six legs in a row for a comfortable victory.

Third seed Price takes on Irishman William O'Connor tonight with the winner meeting Hendo in the last 32, which begins on Sunday.
