Wilson knows what Jones must be going through. The world No.12 previously reached this stage four years ago, but was duly thrashed 18-8 by Ronnie O'Sullivan in one of the most one-sided World Snooker Championship finals of all time.

Jones, who could go down in history as only the third qualifier to win the world title, after Terry Griffiths (1979) and Shaun Murphy (2005), will be determined to avoid bowing out with a whimper. 

His underdog tale has been one for the ages, yet the world No.44 has faced a barrage of unwarranted criticism for perceived slow play. How will he respond?
