Gary Anderson was defeated by Peter on night three of the Premier League despite a promising
performance from the Scot.

Peter Wright was out of the traps quickly, but Anderson would fire home a 12-darter of his own to hold throw early on. A 78 checkout would give Anderson the lead as he looked for the perfect start
in Belfast.

‘Snakebite’ would return with an 11-darter as the pair exchanged blows to make it 3-3 at the halfway
stage. Wright would finally create a two-leg cushion with the first ton-plus checkout of the match, a 120 sending him one leg away from victory.

‘The Flying Scotman’ would return the favour with a huge checkout of his own, double five coming to
the rescue of Anderson off of a terrific 130 combination.
But that would be all for Anderson as Wright rattled in a second 12-darter of the match to seal hisplace in the semi-finals in Belfast.

After a break next Thursday, the eight Premier League stars will return to Exeter ahead of the UK Open on the 3rd March.
