MAGNIFICENT BARNEY IN MANCHESTER
By John Lowe, Apr 3 2015 07:53AM
Raymond Van Barnaveldt put up a magnificent show against World Champion Gary Anderson in Manchester last night, Barney knew anything but a draw would see him leave the Premier League and that is what he acheived under the greatest of pressure from Anderson who averged 108.83, Barney can now concentrate on closing the gap on the top 4 which stands at 3 points and is within his capabilities.
The two players eliminated from the league are Huybrechts and Wright, Huybrechts could only manage a draw against a resilient Bunting while Wright lost 7-4 to a determined Lewis who for once looked like he was ready for the challenge. The opening match of the night between MVG and Wade went to the Dutchman 7-4 and keeps his unbeaten run in the league going, both players averaged over 100 but MVG's finishing was the better.
Phil Taylor went 3 legs to 0 up in his match against Dave Chisnall and looked to be on his way to victory, but missed doubles something we never did associate with Taylor cost him dearly, in one leg he missed double top, double ten and the five to let Chisnall in, at 4-4 Chisnall went up a gear and produced his best darts winning the next 3 legs and the match.
The night however belonged to Barney, not only did he secure his place in the remaining fixtures of the league but probably more so his place in future Premier Leagues.
