Granton’s Craig McGillivray withstood a great fightback from Robert Miller before going on to win Event 5 of the Scottish Masters Series at the Locarno Snooker Club.

The Capital ace looked on course for a comfortable victory in the best-of-seven contest as he raced into a 3-0 lead. However, Miller made a run of 63 to pull one back before winning the next two frames to force a decider.

McGillivray won a tight last frame to pocket a 4-3 victory which puts him back on track to finish the season as No.1.
