Snooker: Boost for Stevens.

WELSHMAN Matthew Stevens defeated Thailand's James Wattana 5-3 in the Regal Scottish Open and is now hoping to recapture the form that took him to world and UK finals just a couple of years ago.

``James had a chance to make it 4-4 so it's just nice to get through,'' said the 25-year-old from Carmarthen. ``I've been working hard and doing the same things in practice I've always done but, when you are short of confidence, it's hard to get over the line.`` Stevens will fancy his chances of making more progress when he meets world No 53 Mark Selby, yesterday's shock winner over Paul Hunter.
