England’s Kyren Wilson produced one of the great comebacks in Masters history to beat world number three Judd Trump 6-5 and book a place in Sunday’s final.

A packed Alexandra Palace was set to celebrate a comfortable win for Trump after breaks of 83, 96 and 69 saw him take a 5-2 lead.

But errors crept into his game while the Kettering-born 26-year-old grew in confidence to reduce the gap to 5-4.

A brilliant 107 made it 5-5 and Wilson came out on top in a tense decider.

Wilson will play either Scottish two-time champion John Higgins or Northern Ireland’s Mark Allen who meet in the other semi-final on Saturday evening.
