Judd Trump booked his place in the Dafabet Masters semi-finals with a 6-4 victory over Shaun Murphy at Alexandra Palace.

He will face Kyren Wilson today.

Trump saw the match out in style with back-to-back century breaks after 2015 champion Murphy had battled back from 4-2 down to level at 4-4.

"At 4-4 I'm proud of the bottle I showed," said Trump.

"The first five frames were too slow for us and we did not play our natural games and it got a bit careless, but towards the end you saw the real Shaun Murphy and Judd Trump."
