LUKE 'The Nuke' Littler reeled in a big-fish finish on his way to disposing of Gerwyn Price 7-3 in the Bahrain Darts Masters semi-finals.

The seemingly unstoppable 16-year-old, who spent his early childhood in Runcorn, checked out with a clinical 170 in the sixth leg, the first break of throw in the contest which gave the 16-year-old a crucial 4-2 lead.

Check-outs of 103 and 89 in the next two legs, after the Welshman missed six arrows at a double in the latter, took Littler to one step from the final.

Price's 132 finish in the ninth only flattered to deceive as Littler wrapped up the match with double 20.

He will face Michael van Gerwen, who defeated Michael Smith 7-6 in the other semi, in tonight's final, which can be watched in the UK on ITV4.
