RYAN JOYCE claimed a comfortable victory on his William Hill World Darts Championship debut as he saw off Anastasia Dobromyslova in straight sets.

Dobromyslova opened with a 140 and took the first leg on double eight but consecutive finishes of 106 and 122 turned the set in Joyce's favour - and he wrapped it up by taking out 95.

Joyce won the second set 3-0 but was pushed all the way to a deciding leg in set four as Dobromyslova battled back - but she was unable to claim a set on her return to Alexandra Palace as Joyce landed double six to complete the win.
