Michael van Gerwen will meet Michael Smith in a top-of-the-table encounter as the Premier League Darts roadshow heads to Glasgow, live on Sky Sports.
Daryl Gurney v Mensur Suljovic
Gurney and Suljovic are both languishing towards the bottom of the standings as the action heads to Glasgow. With Judgement Night in Liverpool only two weeks away, time is running out to move away from the bottom two. 'Superchin' is without a victory in his debut year of the competition while 'The Gentle', in his first Premier League campaign, last won in Leeds against Peter Wright.
Michael van Gerwen v Michael Smith
MVG heads to Scotland on the back of a third Players Championship title at the weekend. The Dutchman is back to his best but will he be put to the test against Smith, who is the story of this year’s edition, in the headline match of the evening? ‘Bully boy’ is level with Van Gerwen at the top of the standings ahead of what promises to be a high-quality encounter.
Gary Anderson v Simon Whitlock
Anderson saw his 27-match unbeaten run come to an end at the Players Championship at the weekend and will be desperate for a win in the Premier League after three consecutive 6-6 draws. Whitlock has won three matches from his opening six but is without a victory from his last three tussles after losing the form which saw him make an impressive start to the campaign.
Major man Anderson back in the groove
Gary Anderson tells Sky Sports the back injury that has hampered his season is now in the rearview mirror after another major title and a 22-match unbeaten run.
Peter Wright v Raymond van Barneveld
Wright is in need of returning to winning ways. ‘Snakebite’ hasn't won in the league since his shock success against Michael van Gerwen in Cardiff. ‘Barney’ sits in the middle of the pack and was part of a thrilling meeting with Anderson last week and will feel he can secure his third success of this year’s edition against his out of form opponent.
Rob Cross v Gerwyn Price
Cross has returned to somewhere near the form which saw him crowned world champion on New Year’s Day after four victories on the bounce in the event. Price has struggled the most out of this year's debutants and props up the table with two draws. Last year's UK Open finalist is currently the most likely to miss out on phase two.
Mardle: Cross looked a million dollars
Rob Cross "looked a million dollars" as the world champion breezed past Mensur Suljovic after the latest round of matches of Premier League darts, says Wayne Mardle.
