We have our final at Players Championship 18 with James Wade aiming for a fourth PDC title of the season as he faces maiden finalist Jose de Sousa shortly.

Wade saw off Krzysztof Ratajski in a match that was nip and tuck throughout but when he broke the throw to go 6-5 up, it was the turning point but he thought he’d won it.

He had to apologise to his opponent as despite being in multiple finals this season, he celebrated and walked off but he kept his cool to finish the job and claim a 7-5 victory with a 100 average.

De Sousa was behind against Dimitri van den Bergh and seemed to be heading out for a second day running in the latter stages but for the Portuguese ace he came back to win 7-5 himself with a 98 average.

What a few weeks it has been for him becoming a serious danger after a brilliant run to the Quarter-Finals at the Danish Darts Open on his European Tour debut and now he sits on the cusp of becoming a ranking winner on the PDC tour for the first time.
