Gary Anderson has revealed that he is hopeful of taking his current form into his World Grand Prix quarter-final with Kevin Painter.
The world number six finished strongly to book his place in the last eight in Dublin, but the Scot admits that he didn't have it all his own way after dropping the opening set to the Northern Irishman.
The 43-year-old is quoted by PDC.TV as saying: "Mickey started well and is a tough opponent, so I'm glad that I managed to pull it back.
"I never seem to make it easy for myself, but I'm happy with my game overall because I'm starting pretty well and scoring well."
Anderson will play Painter, who fought back to defeat two-time world champion Adrian Lewis 3-2, on Friday evening.
