BRILLIANT BARNEY IN BIRMINGHAM
By John Lowe, May 1 2015 07:09AM
Raymond Van Barnaveldt did exactly what he had to do in last nights Premier League in Birmingham, it was his week to play 2 matches, first against Gary Anderson which he won 7-5, it wasn't the best of wins both players missing doubles but a ugly win is still a win, there was a incident at the end of the match when Anderson accused Barney of stamping on the floor when he passed him while retrieving his darts, Barney was clearly upset and rightly so, no player should begin his throw until the opponent his past his eyeline, if he choses to throw before this then he must take the blame for any movement or sound, if the truth be know Gary was upset because he miss counted the previous throw hitting fat 5 when he needed 6 to leave himself double 20. Barney's second match was against Lewis who also had 2 matches on the night, his first he lost to Chisnall who beat him 7-4, the head to head between Lewis and Barney had touches of brilliance from Lewis twice taking out 132 but his finishing was dismal at 25% average and Barney came out a easy winner ay 7-2, the 2 wins means he is now in 4th place with 16 points 3 ahead of Taylor, Lewis fighting for survival.
Wade and Bunting played a 6-6 draw which neither of them could afford and they are now both out of the play off's.
MVG turned on the style against Taylor winning 7-4 with an average of 112, Taylor now finds himself in a position where he must win his remaining games to give himself a place in the play off's something he has never had to do in the Premier League.
