Gerwyn Price believes his chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League are a strong possibility after a rousing win in Cardiff on Thursday.
Price delighted his home fans with an 8-5 win over Michael Smith in a match which saw both men land maximum 170 checkouts.
Smith managed the finish in the third leg as he edged 2-1 up before Price replied immediately in the next leg to pull level.
Price broke to go 5-4 up in the ninth and he extended that into a 7-4 advantage before eventually wrapping up a victory which keeps him fourth in the table, level on 14 points with third-placed James Wade, one leg ahead of Mensur Suljovic (14 points), and Daryl Gurney (12 points).
