THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
All-time meetings:
Gerwyn Price 10-4 Mensur Suljovic
Previous meeting: Gerwyn Price 7-3 Mensur Suljovic

GERWYN PRICE

  • Gerwyn Price will have mixed feelings following his 7-7 draw against Michael van Gerwen last week in Belfast. Before the match he would have been thrilled to take a point from the world number one but Price had led 5-1 and went on to miss two match darts to seal an 8-6 victory against the Dutchman.
  • His average of 98.73 against Van Gerwen is his third highest average of the 2019 Premier League campaign, his sole 100 plus average came in week one against Daryl Gurney.
  • The draw against Van Gerwen means he has now taken three points from his last two matches since suffering a three-match losing streak, Price is only a point outside the play-off places and only two points behind third-placed Mensur Suljovic.

MENSUR SULJOVIC

  • Four wins from his last five matches have seen Mensur Suljovic rise up the league table, he is now in third place only two points behind second-placed Michael van Gerwen.
  • Last Thursday night in Belfast he ground out an 8-6 win against James Wade in what was his second victory against the left-hander in this season's Premier League. Suljovic broke the Wade throw in the final leg of the match to take the two points.
  • He suffered first round exits at both Players Championship tournaments last weekend, losing to Ross Smith on Saturday and Mark McGeeney on Sunday.

THE PREDICTION

With only two points separating these players this is a crucial fixture in the race for a top-four place. Suljovic has put himself in contention with four wins from his last five matches since he lost to Gerwyn Price on night five. Price has kick-started his campaign with a win against Peter Wright and a draw against Michael van Gerwen in his last two matches, his performance against the world number one was his best for a number of weeks and although he didn’t win, he will take huge confidence from how he pushed Van Gerwen all the way. The Welshman can build on that display by taking the two points on offer in this match, Suljovic possibly hasn’t been playing as well as his results suggest and it seems Price enjoys playing against the Austrian, having won three out of his last four matches against Suljovic, including the victory on night five of the 2019 Premier League.
