PDC Premier League of Darts night 11 schedule and how to watch
After night ten the PDC Premier League of Darts is all becoming a bit congested at the top of the table. Glen Durrant leads the way, and is only two victories away from sealing a place at the O2 for finals night.
Then from Michael van Gerwen in second to Michael Smith in fifth only a points separate four players.
Looking ahead to this evening, we have some mouthwatering action from Milton Keynes.
The first game on the stage is Daryl Gurney v Peter Wright; both players will be looking to bounce back following defeats last night. Gurney suffered a massive loss to Michael Smith, which leaves his chances of making the playoffs very slim but he could dash the other player’s chances. Wright lost six legs on the spin to Gary Anderson, as Snakebite lost 8-5 from being 5-3 up. Looking at the performances so far in Milton Keynes, this could be another tough night.
Two nights ago Michael Smith and Nathan Aspinall served up a treat, and they lock horns again this evening. Aspinall won the points last time around after Smith missed eight darts to grab a point. With the games coming thick and fast Aspinall will need to put last nights disappointment behind him. From 4-1 up, Aspinall went on to lose 8-6 to MvG. In contrast, Smith ran out an 8-3 winner over Daryl Gurney. If we get the same standard from Smith and Aspinall that we got two nights ago, then this could be game of the night.
The third game of the evening turns back to the league leader Glen Durrant, Duzza unbeaten since the Premier League restart and looking odds on the make the final four. Durrant beat Gerwyn Price in a frosty encounter and will be looking for another two points again this evening. Anderson is on a charge at the moment as well, after beating Wright last night Anderson moved back into the top. A win for Anderson this evening would be a huge statement and bunch the league up again.
The final game of the evening is Michael van Gerwen against Gerwyn Price. MvG stopped his losing run last night, after coming from 4-1 down to beat Nathan Aspinall. The world number one still has much work to be done as he’s been far from his best so far in the Premier League. Price will be looking to but last nights result behind him and get back to winning ways. The Iceman will feel that the world number one is still there for the beating but will need to be 100% focused on the job in hand.
The action gets underway at 7.00 pm (BST) live on Sky Sports. Don’t have Sky? Then no problem.
