Premier League Night Seven Preview

Premier League action returns to Nottingham this evening, with the top two taking on the bottom two in Quarter-Final action.

MvG Looking To Extend Run

Peter Wright will aim to ignite his Cazoo Premier League campaign by halting Michael van Gerwen’s nine-match winning run on Night Seven in Nottingham on Thursday.

Van Gerwen made Premier League history in Liverpool last week, becoming the first player to win three successive nights since the Premier League’s nightly knockout format was introduced last year.

MvG looking to make it four on the bounce.

The Dutch ace followed up wins in Dublin and Exeter by claiming the spoils on Merseyside, beating Wright in the semi-finals en route to establishing an eight-point lead at the Premier League summit.

Wright celebrated his first two points in this year’s roadshow with victory over Gerwyn Price at the M&S Bank Arena last week, surviving a late rally from the Welshman to triumph in a last-leg shoot-out.

The 2017 runner-up is still six points adrift of the top four places ahead of Thursday’s action at the Motorpoint Arena, although he hopes last week’s exploits can provide the catalyst for a winning run.

Van Gerwen extended his record-breaking Premier League winning streak with a 6-4 success against Michael Smith in last week’s showpiece, and the pair could renew their rivalry in the Night Seven semi-finals.

The winner will take on the winner of Chris Dobey and Michael Smith in the bottom half of the draw.

Welsh Pair Clash

Jonny Clayton and Gerwyn Price will collide in an all-Welsh affair, for the right to play Van den Bergh or Aspinall in the semi-finals.

Price will take on Clayton on Night Seven

The pair suffered quarter-final defeats to Van Gerwen and Wright respectively in Liverpool last week, and both will be eyeing an instant response as they prepare to lock horns for the first time this season.

Clayton topped last year’s league phase after claiming four nightly victories, although Price currently leads his compatriot by a solitary point, as he targets Play-Off qualification for the first time in five appearances.
