Van den Bergh 'on cloud nine' after maiden Premier League win: "That's so insane, I'm overwhelmed"

Dimitri van den Bergh claimed a first Premier League Darts win as he continued his impressive start to life in the tournament by seeing off Nathan Aspinall.

It was 7-5 for Van den Bergh who averaged 103.7 and finished it with 87 on the bull and he was ecstatic to get his first win as a Premier League player.

"During the game, I was thinking what if my doubles are going to click together with my scoring because I really felt that the scoring in this game was there. I don't think I had many turns that I had just a 60 or a 58 or a 57 but my doubles wasn't there," said Van den Bergh post match.

"At the end of the day, 103 average missing so many doubles. I surprised myself, I didn't think it was that well but the most important thing I've got my first ever win in the Premier League. That's so insane, I'm overwhelmed and I'm on cloud nine."

Removing knee brace

A lot has been made in the build up about the removal of his knee brace and also how he will hold up given the rigours of multiple nights of the Premier League.

Van den Bergh though gave an update and said he is feeling good at the moment and all is well in that regard.

"It's feeling fine, it's feeling ok. I just know that when I go back into the room, I need to take care of my leg. Tomorrow morning, it will get stiff but as soon as I walk around the blood circulation goes. So I'm pretty happy about my leg."

Van den Bergh won't 'underestimate' Duzza

Next up is Glen Durrant and despite seemingly being in the darting doldrums, Van den Bergh won't be taking him lightly.

"I'm here not to make up numbers and give it a hundred percent and enjoy the experience. It doesn't matter who I play, you come here and you want to win. I will never underestimate the man."
