The Lowe Down on tonight's P.L.

By John Lowe, Feb 28 2013 04:49PM

OK, I have listened, Twiter folowers do not like me just advertising the matches in the Premier League, they want me to blog my predictions on each game, well, I did just that two weeks ago, and came very close to hitting the jackpot, only MVG let me down with a draw, I thought that was the best week to date, I could probably come close, the pairings where right, the problem predicting match results is, we do not know how each player feels, we do not know what is happening in their personal life, how their confidence is holding up, etc, unlike a race horse, where every detail from training, to health, diet, and much more is made common knowledge, dart players are deep individuals, they try to give nothing away, so as much as I would like to think I can read each player form, there is a uncertainty in every match, I will however offer my own thoughts on tonight's matches as I see them.

Thornton v Anderson, the all Scottish Match, Thornton is without doubt a great battler, and it could be said Anderson is a great bottler when it comes to doubles, I like both these two players, and think they are good TV, tonight I am going for Gary Anderson, the pride of Scotland is at stake.

Hamilton v Van Gerwen, Hamilton is at home in any event, frightened of no one, but for me he is a Taylor Copy, unfortunately he does not have Taylors fluency, MVG is like a prize fighter, every throw is intentional, without any malice, I would add, I feel MVG will win tonight, and a nine darter may be included.

Wade v Taylor, I have always thought, from TV viewing, there is not a lot of love lost between these two, and not a great deal of respect, Taylor hit top form last week, and he clearly enjoyed it, I take Taylor to win tonight.

Newton v Lewis, The two players one and two, at the wrong end of the table, Lewis looks thrown out, Newton looking a little out of his depth in this company, I feel pride will play a big part in this match, Newton will be steady, but Lewis needs the points badly, a Lewis win.

Barney v Whitlock, a tough one to call, and could be the draw match of the night, Barney was well beaten by MVG last week, Whitlock well beaten by Taylor, who want's it bad enough ? they both do, and that's why I go for the Draw.
