Neil Roberton will meet Cao Yupeng in the Scottish Open on Sunday after defeating John Higgins 6-3 on Saturday evening.

Robertson raced into a four-frame lead as he appeared set to wrap up an early victory.

Robertson was so dominant that at one point Higgins went over an hour without potting a ball.

However, Higgins refused to roll over, and dragged himself back to within a frame, with the scores a 4-3.

Roberton then moved into a 5-3 lead in the penultimate frame, before wrapping up the sixth and winning frame.

He will face Cao Yupeng in the final on Sunday.
