MICHAEL VAN GERWEN continued his brilliant Unibet Premier League form by defeating Dutch rival Raymond Van Barneveld in Belfast on Thursday.

The world number one maintained his two point lead at the top of the table with a 7-2 success against Van Barneveld, who took a 2-1 lead before Van Gerwen stormed back to claim a dominant win.

“My finishing was good and I didn’t make a lot of mistakes, so I’m happy with this win,” said Van Gerwen, who produced the highlight with a 132 checkout.

“I like winning and I want to keep this going. I’m very confident and my form is good. My scoring power isn’t there yet but I’m winning my games and all that matters is being top of the table and getting into the Play-Offs.”
