Nathan Aspinall faced off against Gary Anderson last night as the Premier League reached Liverpool and it ended up a draw between the pair.

Aspinall hit back from 5-1 down to claim a point in what was a fast-paced tie between the duo. He levelled the contest only for Anderson to run riot and win the next four without reply.

He responded with legs of 13, 11, 14 and 11 darts to make it 5-5. Anderson stopped the rot claiming at least a point but a superb 12 darter saw ‘The Asp’ take at least a point.

“I’m happy that I came back and got the point. I missed so many darts in the first leg and I got it back to five all.

“He broke my heart with the 95, it was a great shot, because I was in control for those four legs. I was so focused and I played some phenomenal darts.

“Gary was one of my idols growing up and every time I play him it’s an honour. I didn’t beat him this time but I nicked a point off him, so I’ll take that.”
