Wuhan Open: Ronnie O'Sullivan comes from behind to beat Pang Junxu and bag fourth round spot

Ronnie O’Sullivan twice came from behind to snatch a place in the Wuhan Open fourth round with a narrow 5-4 win over Pang Junxu on Wednesday.

The world number one looked to be cruising to victory as he took the opening two frames comfortably with breaks of 67 and 128 but Pang hit back impressively to take the next three.

A clearance of 93 brought O’Sullivan back level but a 107 break put Chinese player Pang within one frame of a huge upset.

He could not sustain the pressure as O’Sullivan responded with breaks of 117 and 64 to set up a last-16 clash with Sijun Yuan.

Judd Trump had no such problems as he thrashed Matthew Selt 5-0 and will now play Barry Hawkins, a 5-1 winner over Jamie Jones.

Mark Allen saw off Si Jiahui 5-4, Stephen Maguire overpowered Zihao Xing 5-1 and Ali Carter edged out Stuart Bingham 5-4.
