Stephen Bunting and Rob Cross have shared the spoils in the fourth match of the night at the Premier League in Liverpool.
Bunting was in front of his home crowd and played well against ‘Voltage’ despite surviving a match dart en route.
‘The Bullet’ stole the first leg as he punished five missed darts at doubles from Cross. Cross though took out 60 to halve the deficit and to get off the mark.
Bunting though surged in front from there but the critical point came when Cross went 4-2 behind with a break of throw.
Cross claimed the lead coming back with a 119 checkout at 5-4. He went 6-5 up from there to claim at least a point and like alluded to he missed a match dart before Bunting snatched a point.
