Daryl Gurney is through to the Last 16 at the Grand Slam of Darts after victory in the Group G shootout against Brendan Dolan.

Gurney hit finishes of 161 and 101 en route to a 5-2 win and said that it was a bit of a struggle mainly due to their past experience of playing each other and that he is just relieved to get over the line and can now look ahead to the rest of the tournament.

“It was a bit of a struggle, when I’m playing Brendan I find it hard to be aggressive which is my natural game,” Gurney admitted.

“A bit of patience got me through the game, my tons eventually turned into 140s and I hit some big shots at crucial moments.

“I’m just relieved to get over the line and now I can look ahead to the rest of the tournament.”
