THE LOWDOWN

MATTHEW SELT

  • Matthew Selt comfortably advanced to the second round of the UK Championship with a 6-2 victory over world number 76 Zhang Yong.
  • Selt has had little success at the UK Championship since he reached the quarter-finals in 2015 so will look to rediscover that form.

DING JUNHUI

  • World number eight Ding Junhui did not show his best form in the first round but made the most of a nervous display by Adam Stefanow to progress 6-1.
  • The 2005 and 2009 UK champion has had an up-and-down season so far but is always considered one of the favourites in the big events.

THE PREDICTION

Despite Matthew Selt's good performance in round one, facing Ding Junhui should be a step too far for the North Londoner. Junhui has had a few below-par years at the UK Championship but will look to reconstruct some form by brushing aside Selt in the second round.
