Selby admits he ‘needs to be at the top of my game’ to beat Robertson
Mark Selby admits he will “need to be at the top of my game” when he takes on Neil Robertson on Friday for a place in the semi-final of the Scottish Open.
Late on Thursday, Selby edged out Jack Lisowski 4-2 to seal his place in the next round after racing into a three-nil lead. But his opponent made him sweat by winning the next two.
And The Jester needed a touch of good fortune to see out the match as Lisowski fouled by inadvertently potting a red.
Ultimately, however, Selby was just relieved to get over the finishing line.
“Yeah, I mean, I tried my best to throw the match away, didn’t I, from 3-0? But I got to four first and that’s the main thing,” Selby reflected afterwards.
