Price sets firm goal after Premier League Darts Sheffield win: "If I win next week I'm back in the Play-Off places"

Gerwyn Price sealed the latest night of Premier League Darts action in Sheffield and for 'The Iceman', he now has the clear goal in mind of reaching the play-offs.

Price was pleased to cope with the pressure and deliver as he saw off Michael van Gerwen in a dramatic game denying the in-form Mighty Mike his first night win in a while.

"I don't think I was at my best today but I'm happy to win," Price reflected. "The last couple of weeks I've been under the cosh and not playing well.

"I was under a lot of pressure tonight; I knew I needed to win two of the last three nights to make the Play-Offs.

"I know I'm in with a shout and if I win next week I'm back in the Play-Off places - as long as I get there I will be happy."

"I enjoyed the final but in the first two games I was under pressure," Price added. "Once I beat Gary and Joe, things probably came a little bit easier for me.

"I knew I needed to win the first game against Gary, and against Joe I knew he would be cold having had a bye in the first round, and I just needed to get into him a little bit.

"To produce 100+ averages in my first two games when the pressure was on and find some of my best darts was good, but there's a lot more in the tank.

"I got the five points, £10,000 and the main thing is I'm still in with a chance of winning this tournament."
