DEFENDING PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPION MICHAEL VAN GERWEN sealed his spot in this season’s play-offs with a win and a draw in Birmingham on Thursday.

The world number one hit back from 6-3 down to share the spoils with Dave Chisnall in the first of a double-header on week 13.

The Dutchman then produced a brilliant performance to defeat Adrian Lewis 7-0.

“It’s been a good evening for me,” said a happy Van Gerwen. “To go home with three points is good and I think I made a great night of it at the end with the win over Adrian.

“It was a fantastic performance and I played phenomenal against Adrian – I came alive and everything clicked.

“The first step is getting into the Play-Offs and the biggest step is at The O2, and I want to keep this going now. I’m feeling good and I’m playing really well.”
