Joe Perry rarely shows emotion on the table, but failing to get out of a snooker in his match with David Gilbert at the Championship League prompted him to lose his cool.

Perry came into the game on a low note after losing to Anthony McGill and Ali Carter earlier in the day.

He was looking to reinvigorate his chances of qualifying for the semi-finals of Group 6 in his match with Gilbert, but he lost the opening frame and things got worse in the second.

He attempted to get out of a snooker, but missed the red and as he walked back to his chair he crashed the rest into the floor.

Known as The Gentleman, Perry looked like he was ready to explode when sat in his seat as Gilbert took the second frame.

To his credit, Perry fought back to take frames three and four but he ended the day without a point to his name after Gilbert took the final frame with a brilliant break of 133.

The win took Gilbert to two wins from three matches, while Perry props up the group on zero points.

McGill is well placed to advance to the semi-finals from Group Six, after winning three of his four matches on Friday.

There was nothing spectacular about the 2020 World Championship semi-finalist's play, but he seized on the errors of his opponents to move onto three points.

Carter is also on three points, but he is a perfect three wins from as many games and looks well set to advance to the semi-finals for the second group in a row.

Mark Williams got the better of a tight battle with Liang Wenbo in the final match of the night to move onto two points, with everything to play for on Saturday.
