Snooker: Stevens overcomes valiant Allen

In a great match, Matthew Steven managed to keep his cool to beat Mark Allen by 13 frames to 9. This is a much needed win for Stevens who has been struggling to keep his top 16 place this season.

Mark Allen has had a great début at the Crucible beating Doherty and put up a great fightback against Stevens. Allen was 8-3 down and pulled the match back to 11-9. But he couldn't hang on with the pressure of the match building as the end was in sight.

Stevens now goes on to play Shaun Murphy in the quarter final, a repeat of the 2005 world final. It should prove to be a cracking match!
