Van Gerwen Powers Past Price to Remain Top

Michael Van Gerwen, 2018 Unibet Premier League Darts, Dublin

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN stayed at the summit of the Unibet Premier League Darts table after a comfortable victory against Gerwyn Price in Nottingham on Thursday evening.

A 152 checkout was the highlight of Van Gerwen’s 7-3 success over the Welshman, as he stayed ahead of his next opponent, Michael Smith, on leg difference.

“I think I played okay but I know I can do a lot better,” said the reigning champion. “I did the right things at the right moments and got the two points, which was the most important thing.

“I want to raise my game now for the rest of the Premier League, but I’m at the top of the table and that’s where I want to be. I feel good.”

Next Thursday sees Van Gerwen take on Smith in Glasgow on the seventh night of league action.
