Gary Anderson 24-13 Peter Wright (2 draws)
If this match is anything like their earlier meeting in this season’s Premier League then we are in for a classic. The match in question finished 6-6 with Anderson recovering from 6-3 down to snatch a point in a high-quality contest where both players averaged approximately 105. They have met since then, with Anderson winning 6-0 in the final of a Players Championship tournament in March.
Anderson has had much the better of their previous meetings having tasted defeat in only three of their last 18 encounters, though Wright did enjoy a famous win over his Scottish rival at the Grand Slam of Darts last November.
Although Wright has improved in recent weeks from his shocking run of three 7-1 defeats on the trot, he still doesn’t look like the same player who performed so well when they drew 6-6 on night four. Anderson will be keen to bounce back from defeat last week; he raises his game when a match has an extra edge attached to it and there is some rivalry attached to this fixture. It’s a match which could go all the way to the final leg with Anderson nipping in to take the two points.
