Anderson sneaks past De Sousa to claim victory in Premier League Darts Night Two opener

Gary Anderson has claimed the opening tie of Night Two of the 2021 Premier League Darts by edging past Jose de Sousa in a 7-5 win.

Anderson has claimed what is only the second win so far with Nathan Aspinall victorious in a draw laden opener last night but he snuck past 'The Special One' who missed three darts to claim a point.

Anderson produced a superb start to proceedings with some incredible finishing. This saw him start with a 112 and a 145 to see him head into a 2-1 lead early on.

He nailed double 20 from there to go 3-1 up with a 109 average as he started to motor in the opening game.

Despite this, De Sousa wasn't playing bad and reduced the arrears to 4-3 with a break and made it parity from there at 4-4.

But Anderson edged back in front and both players held their throws from there which allowed 'The Flying Scotsman' at least a point but in a leg which could see him draw once more.

De Sousa had his chance to draw after Anderson missed a 142 drifting into single eight but three darts went begging for 'The Special One' which allowed the latter to return and hit a clutch double seven for only the second win of this year's Premier League.
