"She rises to the occasion" - Laura Turner expects Fallon Sherrock to match Michael van Gerwen

Michael van Gerwen and Fallon Sherrock face each other at the Grand Slam of Darts on Saturday night. Sky Sports analyst Laura Turner thinks Sherrock will give just as good as she gets against the three-time World Champion.

''Fallon Sherrock knows Michael van Gerwen's game and is on a hot streak," Turner begins her preview of the showdown between Van Gerwen and Sherrock for Sky Sports. ''They're part of the same management team, they travel together for exhibitions and she's pushed him before in Denmark at the Nordic Masters. She knows his game and she's played him quite a lot and although I don't think anybody would particularly want to draw Michael van Gerwen, I just think she'll play the player in front of her and I think Michael will do the same."

Group matches against Martijn Kleermaker and Rob Cross are scheduled later for Van Gerwen and Sherrock. Sherrock caused a sensation in 2021 by reaching the quarterfinals at the Grand Slam of Darts after wins over Mike de Decker, Gabriel Clemens and Mensur Suljovic.

''Fallon will be thinking one match at a time, try and get a good start, she's been here before and got through to the quarter-finals. She knows the format, she knows that she's playing well, it's all down to what happens on the day," Turner expects. ''I just think you've got to make the most of these opportunities because she's played herself into this position and she'll look at that and think she'll be happy enough. She rises to the occasion and I know she's not going to win everything but I don't think she'll be worried about playing anyone."
