Judd Trump and Neil Robertson will go head-to-head in the English Open final later today.

The world number one and world number three respectively will battle it out for the Steve Davis Trophy and the £70,000 top prize at Milton Keynes from 1pm.

Robertson came through a thrilling semi-final decider against Mark Selby after winning a final frame decider after his 5-3 lead was wiped out.

And Judd Trump, winner of six ranking events last season, came back from 4-3 behind to beat John Higgins 6-4 on Saturday night.

Not including the on-going Championship League, the English Open is the second ranking event of the new 2020/21 snooker season. The event, part of the Home Nations series has been a part of the snooker calendar since 2016.

Selby won the season’s first ranking event, the European Masters, last month after beating Martin Gould in the final.
