Gerwyn Price will return home this evening as the Premier League heads to the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff for the third night of action.

Price will make his first appearance in Wales after becoming back-to-back Grand Slam Champion as he seeks his first victory of the campaign so far with the crowd on his side for once which is something he is looking forward to.

He spoke as well about the feeling of winning on home soil last year and how much of a boost that was; as well as underlining his top four playoff ambitions as he hopes to start a winning run.

“Of course, Cardiff is the first date I looked for when the Premier League fixtures came out,” said Price.

“I love playing in front of a Welsh crowd, there’s nowhere better for me to play.

“It makes a nice change having the crowd on my side and I hope to thrive in that atmosphere as I did last year.

“It was an amazing feeling hitting a 170 finish and winning in front of my home crowd last year. I would love to experience that feeling again.

“I’ve made an okay start to the Premier League this year. I felt like I threw away a win on Night One, but on Night Two I probably pinched a point.

“Last year I probably drew too many games so this year I need to make sure I turn a few draws into wins and hopefully I will be in the top four mix come the end of the campaign.”
