3:2 

Maguire takes it, finally. Phew, a real battle of wits that was, with some nervy mistakes made throughout.

2:2 

Good pressure pot on the yellow from Pettman afte Maguire had missed it, but he misses the green straight after. Five balls left, 50-36 Pettman. Knife-edge.

2:2 

That's real bad luck for Pettman. He goes for red and off two cushions the cue ball ends up in the left-centre pocket.

2:2 

Pettman looks as shocked as anyone at that. A complete miscue ends a fine break and now Maguire is back at the table.

2:2 

That's a poor miss on the black from Pettman, but that's just as bad from Maguire. Neither player can seem to pot a ball at the moment - it's nervy.

2:2 

You've got to say Pettman has a resolve about him. He takes the frame and we're down to the decider.

2:1 

Maguire hits back but can't sustain it and Pettman is back at the table. 43 ahead with 51 remaining, but that's a bad miss on the red and Maguire is allowed back in.

2:1 

Once again, an impressive response from Pettman. His break currently stands at 51 and with the right shot selection and a bit of luck he could clear the table here.

2:1 

Maguire has a go at a plant and misses but it doesn't matter - a break of 62 sees the Scot take a 2-1 lead.

1:1 

He's now 52 ahead with 51 remaining. Three of the reds a are tight on cushions, though.

1:1 

Maguire breaks the stalemate by potting a red to the bottom left-hand pocket. He calmly slots a few more reds and is looking good.

1:1 

Both players know how crucial this frame is and that's why they're taking their time over every shot. Pettman leads 13-11 but it's an attrition game of safety shots out there at present.

1:1 

It's too tall a task for Maguire, particularly with a red nailed to the right cushion as it is there. Pettman comes back to the table, knocks in a red and that's the frame.

1:0 

A classy cut to the centre-left from Pettman, but what's this? He's missed a routine pink and Maguire is back, trailing 60-17.

1:0 

This a sturdy response from Pettman. He's capitalised well on Maguire's misfortune and is now 43 ahead with 51 remaining.

1:0 

Maguire's at the table again, leading 15-0. The reds are bunched and the black is at the top. He fires in the pink but unluckily pots a red to the middle pocket at the same time.

1:0 

He's off the table only for a moment before he's back and with a simple plant makes it 73-1, before missing the blue. Frame one to the Scot.

0:0 

Maguire starts in impressive fashion with a break of 48 until he's forced to play a safety.

0:0 

We're underway with the final match of the session betwen Stephen Maguire and Stuart Pettman. Maguire is at the table, leading 8-0.
