It was a vital win for Gurney to lift him away from the bottom of the table as he stunned the World Champion 7-5. Trailing 2-0 early on, the signs looked ominous for Gurney.

But after a missed dart from Van Gerwen in the third at tops, Gurney capitalised to get himself back in the game. At 3-2 down, ‘Superchin’ then put together a run of three straight legs to lead 5-3 and take command of the tie.

A superb 86 checkout in two darts guaranteed a point for Gurney, and despite more pressure from Van Gerwen as he moved within one – the Northern Irishman got over the line to secure a vital win.
