Michael van Gerwen produced a brilliant comeback from 2-0 down to defeat Adrian Lewis in a 5-2 victory to qualify from Group A at the Grand Slam of Darts.

Van Gerwen spoke afterwards and admitted that while he is not playing at his best, he found an extra gear when he had to and that he did the right things at the right moment.

He also wants to focus on the last group match and put right the victory that Ross Smith got over him at the European Championship recently.

“I’ve not been at my best but my darts didn’t let me down and I found an extra gear when I had to against Adrian,” said Van Gerwen. “He tried to push me, especially at the beginning, but I did the right things at the right moments.

“I’m through to the next round and I can look ahead to that, but I’ll still concentrate on the last group match. Ross Smith beat me in the European Championship and of course I want to put that right.”
