MICHAEL VAN GERWEN marked his return from injury with an impressive win on night six of the 2017 Premier League in Glasgow.

The world number one and defending Premier League champion won the last three legs to defeat Belgium’s Kim Huybrechts 7-5 on Thursday.

The Dutchman, who also missed last weekend’s UK Open finals, said:  “I feel good and it was great to be back tonight. It’s always nice to get the two points and Kim played well, but you have to take advantage if he misses and I did that.

“It’s another two points for me and the crowd were nice, but next week in Rotterdam will be very special for me too.”

Van Gerwen will be in action at this weekend’s Players Championship double-header in Barnsley before taking on Phil Taylor in Rotterdam next Thursday.
