ANDERSON MAKES HIS MOVE IN GLASGOW
By John Lowe, Mar 18 2016 08:26AM
The big match of the night was between Michael Van Gerwen and Phil Taylor, but it didn't go to plan for MVG, at 5-1 up he looked to have the match all but won, but Taylor somehow fought back to 6-4 when disaster struck for MVG, 3 missed match darts at doubles allowed Taylor to close to 6-5 and then go on and take the 12th leg with a 81 finish, match drawn, points shared and level at the top of the table with 11 points each.
Gary Anderson was playing in front of his Scottish home crowd, due to an illness in week 1 of the P.L. it meant he would be playing 2 matches to catch up, an advantage some would say, especially with such massive crowd support, but he still had to win, and while the big 2 where picking up 1 point each Anderson was climbing the table fast, a first match win against Adrian Lewis 7-4 and a 7-5 win against Peter Wright meant Gary had taken all 4 points and leapt into 3rd pl;ace just 1 point off the lead, true to say he had his share of good fortune against Wright who could not finish to earn a draw, but that was the story of the night following Taylor's let of by MVG.
James Wade beat Robert Thornton 7-4 in a close match, it was clear to see Thornton was trying his best to get his season going, with an average of 101 it must be frurstating not to get a result, he does have a lifeline knowing he will be playing 2 matches next week, a good performance could make a massive difference.
Barney beat Dave Chisnall 7-4 with a good performance averaging 104.90, the 2 points earned keeps him 3 points ahead of the bottom 3, the fight for survival begins in earnest next week, with just 2 matches left before 2 players will drop out, Thornton is bottom with 1 point with a game in hand, Smith and Chisnall have 3 points each.
