Mark King staged an im­pres­sive come­back to de­feat John Hig­gins at the UK Cham­pi­onship in York. The world No 21 won four of the last five frames for a 6-5 vic­tory to reach the quar­ter­fi­nals at the Bar­bican Cen­tre. Three-time cham­pion Hig­gins, the fourth seed, held leads of 4-2 and 5-4 but King’s bat­tling qual­i­ties came to the fore as he lev­elled the match and forced a de­cid­ing frame, which he clinched with break of 69 – his high­est of the match.
