The third seed James Wade was at his best yesterday as he powered into the quarter-finals of the PDC World Championship with a 4-0 win over Steve Farmer.

Wade, looking for a first world title, took the first set 3-0 while Farmer claimed only a single leg in the second and had a dart for the set in both the third and fourth, but it was a dominant display from Wade.

"It wasn't as easy as the scoreline suggests," Wade said, "but I've only lost one set in three matches so far, so I must be doing something right." Wade next faces Canada's John Part, the 2003 and 2008 champion, who beat Kevin Painter 4-2.
