Chisnall on potential Premier League spot after Gurney win at The Masters: "I thought I did enough to get in last year"

Dave Chisnall is through to the Quarter-finals of The Masters where a tie against Peter Wright awaits after victory over Daryl Gurney.

Going for a 74 checkout in the decider, he drifted into double seven but composed himself for double nine to win through.

"I got a bit lucky there. When I missed that 36, nine darts I thought I blew it but I kicked off alright in the last leg, I just thought give me a shot at double. When I had that 32, I thought I've hit 14 but when I'm at home and practicing, double nine is one of my favourites," said Chisnall post match.

"It was frustrating but he took some brilliant finishes out. He took the 170 but I missed doubles at the time. At the end of the day, just get the job done and that's what I did."

A lot has been made about Premier League contention but it isn't really in the St Helens thrower's immediate thoughts.

"You can't think about Premier League so you've got to do a job at The Masters first and that's what I did. I thought I did enough to get in last year and they put Glen Durrant in. It was nip and tuck between me and Glen last year."
