Gary Anderson heads into tonight’s Premier League action sitting sixth in the Premier League table in the darting roadshow’s precursor to the UK Open, a tournament which proved a happy hunting ground two years ago.

Anderson will lock horns in Exeter with Luke Humphries, who will make his second consecutive Challenger appearance in this particular stop; for ‘The Flying Scotsman’ it is all about improvement going into this week.

“As I’ve said before, I just want my game to be back where it was,” said Anderson.

“It’s getting there each week and I’m enjoying it. The darts are getting a bit tighter and when they go well, they go well but there are a few off darts now and again.

“Luke’s a great talent. He’s a classy player and one of these players who is coming through. He’s no mug and if I got beaten by him, I wouldn’t be ashamed at all.”
