    Match Notes:

     Absolutely Amazing! Robertson comes back from the dead to win 13-12, the great revival since Lazarus!

     Well here we go then. A final frame shoot out.

     A nervy frame goes to Robertson as he clings on tenaciously in the match. He's still 12-11 down but Gould will have to summon up something now to get himself over the line. Only once before has an 11-5 deficit been overturned in round two.

    Gould grabs his first frame of the day after Neil left the last red on.

     The Aussie needs one more frame to complete his recovery and level the match.

     Robertson wins all four frames up to the interval. Only two behind now and looking like the favourite to win the match.

     Robertson takes the opener with 64 and fires in a ton to take the next. The Aussie is buzzing this afternoon.

     Welcome back to the final session of the this match. Can Martin Gould holds his nerves together to reach a first Crucible quarter final and a dream match against Steve Davis or can Robertson find his form to fightback. Stay with us this afternoon to find out.

    Gould finishes the night in style with a 63, which including one brilliant plant and a full length of the table swerve to pot a green.

    Robertson suddenly springs to life to win a frame. He must win the last of the night now but would still trail by four going into the last session.

    Another amazing Crucible story is unfolding here. Gould looks very strong but Robertson's game seems to have nearly disintegrated.

    They share the first two frames of the evening session so Gould still has a three frame advantage.

    Gould finishes a great morning session 6-2 up, but he did let Robertson in to take the last two frames.

    Robertson's poor form continues as Gould goes 5-0 with a 43 clearance.

    Gould's dream start continues. A quick fire 80 and he's 4-0 up. But will the interval change things?

    A fabulous start by Martin Gould. He is playing brilliantly and that century takes him 3-0 up.

    Martin Gould settles his nerves by taking the opening frame.
