The schedule has been released for the evening session at the Champions League of Darts as the winners and losers face each other with some tantalising prospects to come as the group action continues.
This starts off with one of them in Rob Cross and Daryl Gurney facing off. Cross lost out early to Gerwyn Price who made an impressive debut in Leicester so ‘Voltage’ will hope to bounce back against Daryl Gurney.
Gurney himself lost out to Peter Wright in what was a closely fought tie to begin proceedings in the afternoon session. This was a game that paled in comparison to the Cross-Price tie which was full of drama.
Wright and Price will take on each other in the second tie of the evening session in Group B. ‘Snakebite’ will aim for better after only just squeezing through against Gurney especially against Price who like mentioned was excellent versus Cross.
Then it is the turn of Group A. Gary Anderson and James Wade will face off in the losers’ game, ‘The Flying Scotsman’ lost out to Michael Smith after going 5-1 up with Smith coming out a 10-7 winner in an impressive display of power scoring from the duo.
Wade lost out in the end to Michael van Gerwen in another closely ran tie which saw Mighty Mike surge at the last minute and he will take on Smith in a repeat of their World Championship final. A brilliant session in store in Leicester.
