Northern Ireland's Mark Allen put his snooker World Cup disappointment behind him to claim a place in the last sixteen of the Australian Open on Tuesday.

Allen had played alongside compatriot Gerard Greene at the World Cup in Bangkok where they lost 4-2 to China in Sunday's final.

The Antrim man quickly shifted his focus back to singles competition though, seeing off the challenge of Ryan Day in Bendigo.

Allen took an early two frame lead before his opponent battled back to level the match at 2-2, and the momentum seemed to be shifting in the seventh as Day took a 47-point lead with the game deadlocked at 3-3.

However Allen battled back well to win that frame and clinched the next with a break of 72 to set up a meeting with Scotland's Marcus Campbell in the next round.
