Alfie Burden will hope to continue his fine recent form in the World Championships qualifiers which begin today (Wednesday) in Sheffield.

Following his first-ever ranking event quarter-final last week at the China Open, eventually losing 5-1 to Stephen Maguire, the Hatfield player takes on Maltese veteran Tony Drago in round one of the qualifiers tomorrow (Saturday).

In Burden’s one and only appearance at the Crucible, back in 1998, he was beaten by Drago in the first round 10-8.
