Gary Anderson failed to capitalize on yesterday’s stunning victory as he ran into an inspired Gerwyn Price on night eight on the PDC Premier League.

The Welshman was fighting for his Premier League status after being dragged into the relegation scrap following a poor start to the season, but the victory over Anderson assures his place in phase two of the competition.

Price opened the contest with a strong hold and then break of throw, putting the Scot on the back-foot. Anderson would revive briefly but struggled to find the form that blew away Michael Smith just 24 hours ago. A checkout on double five confirmed a point for Price.

Anderson would fire in five perfect darts as he looks to resurect his chances of a point, but Price would close out a big victory that closed the gap on the top four and a big step in the right direction to securing his Premier League status.
