A break of 77 with a miss on the pink to prevent a clearance finishes off the match. That was very poor from McManus, but fair play to Maguire for getting the job done.

A mistake from Maguire on a simple red is followed by a cracking red to the top-left pocket.
Not a brilliant snooker from McManus there, he's left a red on and it could be all over fairly soon. Maguire at the table going in for the kill.
That's a fantastic pressure pot from Maguire on the yellow, cutting it from deep to fire it sweetly into the bottom-left pocket. He misses the green but no matter - three snookers is just too much for McManus and he concedes the frame.
Beautiful snooker from McManus which will be a real toughie for Maguire to negotiate himself out of.
Once again this has been a tightly-contested frame but lacking in quality. Maguire leads 62-27 and we're on to the colours with McManus needing a few snookers.
Well, that's one frame that won't live long in the memory. Maguire chipped away and chipped away, with little breaks here and there and eventually took the frame against an out-of-sorts McManus.
But he's looking decent now as he's 50-7 up and on a break of 24. Three reds stuck to the bottom cushion though, so could be tricky to continue.
Bad miss from Maguire with a cut red to the bottom-left pocket. The quality, unsurprisingly, is not reaching the lofty heights of the two previous matches this afternoon.
Onto the final match of afternoon and this could be a gritty encounter between the pair of Scots, Alan McManus and Stephen Maguire.
