Zhou Yuelong reaches Northern Ireland Open final after battle with Anthony McGill

Zhou Yuelong has reached his third ranking final after seeing off Anthony McGill in the semis of the Northern Ireland Open.

The 24-year-old Chinese will face Neil Robertson or Mark Allen in the final following a 6-4 victory on Saturday afternoon.

Zhou previously met Robertson in the 2020 European Masters final, where he was thrashed 9-0.

However, he goes into the final at Waterfront Hall in fine form after some high-level snooker in his win over McGill.

The pair traded the lead as the match reached 4-4 before Zhou pulled clear with a break of 127, going on to secure his place in the final.
