It is unlikely that the meeting between Adam Duffy and Barry Pinches in the first round of the UK Championships tonight will be one for the purists.

Sheffield cueman Duffy, ranked 66 in the world, three places above Pinches in the standings, has told The Telegraph: “Barry would probably admit himself that he is not the most free-flowing player but he gets the job done. He is a grinder.”

Sheffield amateur Mitchell Travis takes on Marco Fu tomorrow.
