Mensur Suljovic and Chris Dobey shared the spoils in the third match of the opening night of the Premier League.
Suljovic had to work for it though having to come back from 5-1 down to earn a point.
Dobey as a contender doesn’t earn any points but has showed that he was worthy of being included in the nine man lineup to replace Gary Anderson.
‘Hollywood’ had a dream start to proceedings firing in a 180 and a 113 checkout to win the first leg.
He raced to a 5-1 lead from there with a brilliant 84 checkout on the bullseye.
He was averaging around 102 at the time and was understandably in dreamland in front of his home crowd.
This led to him missing chances to go 6-1 up and this allowed Suljovic to kick on and claim the draw.
