Snooker: Murphy comback places him in final

Shaun Murphy staged one of the great fightbacks to stun Ali Carter and book a place in tomorrow's UK Championship final.

It looked to be Carter's match when he led 8-4 in the best-of-17 contest, but Murphy was transformed after the mid-session interval, with breaks of 76, 49, 105 and 78 forcing a decider.

And Murphy held his nerve in a tense final frame as breaks of 39 and 29 carried him through to a clash with either Mark Selby or Mark Davis, who meet today.
