Joe Perry came from behind to beat Jamie Burnett and set up a Crucible clash on Ronnie O’Sullivan.

The Chatteris potter overturned a 6-3 overnight deficit to win 10-7 in the first round of the Snooker World Championship in Sheffield.

Perry said: “I’m pleased with myself. I dug in and stuck with it. I don’t think I played overly bad yesterday, it was just that Jamie punished me for my mistakes. I knew if I got chances I’d have to make more of them.

“It doesn’t get any tougher than Ronnie O’Sullivan, but, saying that, I would have been absolutely gutted to be sat at home watching Jamie play him.

“We all have to believe that we can win. If we play our absolute best and cut out the errors, and he isn’t at his best, then he’s beatable.”
