Montgomery stuns Clayton, Schindler seals home hero battle with Clemens and Ratajski superb in Van den Bergh win

Saturday's action is complete at the European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen with Ross Montgomery, Martin Schindler and Krzysztof Ratajski finding their way into the final day.

Montgomery was the biggest result of all. After sealing his first win on the European Tour yesterday, the former BDO stalwart dumped out Jonny Clayton.

Clayton of course played in Premier League finals night and has been doing exhibitions also in recent days so perhaps came in not at his best.

But 'The Boss' prevailed sealing a 12-darter to edge through with some superb scoring in that final leg going 180, 171 to leave 50 which he took on double 20.

It was very much a tie where both weren't troubled on their respective throws but Montgomery broke at 5-4 with pressure in the form of a 123 on the bull from Clayton and he hit double 20 and threw for the win from there.

In a match where one German was always going to head home, it was Gabriel Clemens who did so against Martin Schindler who sealed it 6-3.

They will be teammates in two weeks at the World Cup of Darts, but it was 'The Wall' who continues his great form who prevailed albeit on double one.

A finish that Krzysztof Ratajski did not need who fired in three ton plus checkouts en route to a superb deciding leg win over Dimitri van den Bergh.

He hit a high checkout of 112 with 54.5% on the outer ring overall, a 96 average with four 180's and defied a 103 average from Van den Bergh. He also sealed it in style with a 105 checkout. Superb from 'The Polish Eagle'.
