Daryl Gurney will be hoping for his first Premier League win come Thursday night. He plays Michael van Gerwen so will have a tough task getting that first win but he will be hoping to test the World Number One.
Gurney spoke ahead of his clash with ‘Mighty Mike’. He admitted that he needs to cut out the mediocre darts and that he needs to keep his foot on the gas.
“I’ve got to cut out the mediocre stuff, play proper darts – the way I have been practising,” Gurney told the official PDC website.
“The way I’ve played in the last couple of weeks, I’ve been steady enough, playing okay but I can play so much better.
“I’m putting in the practice and hitting more 100 averages than I ever have, and for some reason I keep wiring doubles on the stage.”
“Gerwyn got back in the game and for some reason I seemed to get nervous,” added the 31-year-old from Derry.
“I still got a point – it could be worse. I’m putting myself in a good position but I need to keep my foot on the gas.
“I’m going to have to take it the same way I took the Barneveld game. It was the same thing, but you’ve got to take it on the chin.”
