However, double trouble in the third leg for both players proved costly for Jacklin as Winstanley held her nerve and took a 3-0 lead.

Jacklin fought back in the fourth with an 18-dart leg, but Winstanley’s power scoring in the fifth and a 105 checkout secured her the win 4-1 with a 76.77 average.

Winstanley will now face Anca Zijlstra in Saturday's quarter-finals.
