1:3 

And that's it! Fu concedes the match and we are still yet to see a two-frame comeback from any player in this tournament.

1:2 

Frame ball goes in for Higginson before he plays a safety.

1:2 

Once again, Higginson's break comes to an end prematurely, this time on 51. Can Fu replicate his last frame performance?

1:2 

And as we've seen numerous times so far in this event, a player leading 2-0 loses the third but then comes back strong in the fourth. Higginson is on a break of 38 and seems determined not to make the kind of mistake that cost him the last frame.

1:2 

What a time to find your form. Higginson was guilty of being a bit too hasty, and Fu took full advantage of it with a clearance of 60 to reduce the deficit to one.

0:2 

Higginson has his eyes on the prize and tries to rush the victory, overcooking a red to the left-centre which hits the top jaw and bounces out. A clearance here from Fu could change everything.

0:2 

It's looking good for Higginson here as he's on a break of 23 and the reds, while bunched, are makeable. Could be all over in minutes.

0:2 

Fu is off his game but fair play to Higginson - he's making the most of it and now looks extremely likely to progress to the last 16.

0:2 

Fantastic double from Higginson and alhough he misses the next red, it's too much for Fu to get back on and it's now 2-0.

0:1 

Fu is having a shocker. He can't seem to cue anything right and needs to sort it out as soon as possible to stand any chance of staying in the tournament.

0:1 

Exciting break from Higginson so far, with the highlight being a superb blue to the left-centre landing in perfect position for a red to the bottom-right pocket. 51 and couting.

0:1 

Higginson is showing no fear here, as he eventually takes the first frame. He lost to Neil Robertson in the final of the Welsh Open in 2007 and has his sights on a rapid rankings rise, which if he keeps this up, he'll achieve it.

0:0 

It's nip and tuck, this frame. Four reds left, all bunched on the bottom cushion and safety exchanges are in play. 25-21 Higginson leads.

0:0 

So unlucky for Higginson. His earlier break ended at just 17 but was back on the table, looking good until the white finds its way into the right-centre pocket.

0:0 

Relative unknown Andrew Higginson is at the table in the second match of the afternoon, and the final match of the fourth round, taking on Marco Fu. He's on a break of 16 and looking confident.
