THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
All-time
meetings: Daryl Gurney 7-5 Mensur Suljovic
Previous meeting: Mensur Suljovic 6-1 Daryl Gurney

DARYL GURNEY

  • Daryl Gurney has won each of his last two Premier League matches to move to within two points of the top of the table. He is unbeaten in three matches since the heavy defeats of 7-1 and 7-0 on nights four and five.
  • Last night he punished a poor performance from Van Barneveld to win comprehensively 7-1, a result which was much needed in terms of Gurney’s leg difference.
  • His average of 89.84 against Barney was his lowest in the 2019 Premier League so far.

MENSUR SULJOVIC

  • Mensur Suljovic earned an unlikely win against Rob Cross last night having trailed 5-1 and looking as though he was heading for a heavy defeat. A combination of Cross faltering along with Suljovic improving and taking his chances resulted in a six-leg winning streak that gave the Austrian a 7-5 win.
  • Suljovic wrapped up the match against Cross with checkouts of 136 and 120 in the last two legs – prior to that he had registered only one ton-plus checkout in the tournament.
  • He is now third in the table just a point behind Michael van Gerwen and Rob Cross having won three consecutive games. Suljovic has suffered only one defeat in his last six Premier League matches.

THE PREDICTION

Both Suljovic and Gurney must have had some elimination concerns three weeks ago but they have strung together some positive results to put themselves very much in contention at the top end of the table. They picked up wins in Rotterdam on Wednesday evening despite averaging under 90 and one would expect an improvement on that performance level from them both. The finishing from Suljovic during the Premier League campaign has been more consistent than Gurney and it might just be the deciding factor in getting him a narrow victory in this match.
