Template - Date: Premier League Glasgow

Grand Slam of Darts champion Price flew out of the traps into a 4-1 lead, and soon found himself within a leg of victory at 6-2, only to miss four darts across the next two legs to allow Van Barneveld back into the contest.

Starring in Glasgow for the last time before retirement, the Dutch ace made it four legs on the spin to complete a remarkable comeback. Four-time Premier League champion Michael van Gerwen became the only player to secure back-to-back victories as he overcame Mensur Suljovic 7-3.

World number one Van Gerwen raced into a 3-0 lead, before Suljovic showed resistance to get himself back within a leg of the Dutchman at 3-2. That was as close as the World Matchplay finalist came to restoring parity, as Van Gerwen reeled off four of the next five legs to go top of the table.

Daryl Gurney, Glen Durrant (Steve Welsh, PDC)

Clinical finishing proved to be the difference for Daryl Gurney, missing just two darts at double as he defeated three-time Lakeside Champion Glen Durrant 7-3.

Two world class 121 finishes from Players Champion Gurney helped him on his way to a 5-1 lead, before Durrant missed two darts at double 18 and was ruthlessly punished by Gurney who tidied up 78 in two darts to secure a point.

Durrant rallied and found his mark on the doubles, taking out 81 to break throw and make it 6-3, but Gurney kept up his consistency on the doubles to find double 16 at the first attempt to get his first two points of the season on the board.

Peter Wright, Michael Smith (Steve Welsh, PDC)

An entertaining opening match saw Peter Wright fight back from 4-1 down to earn a 6-6 draw against Michael Smith. 2018 finalist Smith, who landed six 180s in the contest, stormed into a commanding three-leg advantage and was averaging over 20 points more than his opponent.

Home favourite Wright then sprung into life, winning four of the next five legs to make it all-square at 5-5 after Smith missed six darts to secure a point. Wright found double 16 once again to go in to the lead and guarantee a point, but Smith held his nerve in the final leg, finding double six with his last dart in hand to ensure a share of the spoils.

Rob Cross (Steve Welsh, PDC)

Former World Champion Rob Cross produced a ton-plus average for the second consecutive week in his 7-4 triumph over James Wade.

Cross, who reached the Play-Offs of last year’s tournament, missed doubles early on in the piece and was typically punished by a clinical Wade but fought back to level at 3-3.

World number two Cross hit the bull for a magnificent 85 finish to go 5-3 in front, and that turned out to be the turning point as Cross made no mistakes from thereon in, ending the match with an impressive 102.58 average.

Darts’ widest-reaching tournament continues in Dublin on Thursday February 21 live on Sky Sports, worldwide through the PDC’s broadcast partners, and through PDCTV-HD for Rest of the World Subscribers.

Night Three will see Van Gerwen take on Cross, while emerging Irish talent Steve Lennon makes his Premier League debut against Wright.

The top four players at the end of 16 nights will face off in the Play-Offs at The O2 on May 23, while the ninth-placed player following Judgement Night in Rotterdam will face an early elimination.
