Anderson stays on target

Eyemouth’s Gary Anderson notched up his fifth victory of the Betway Premier League (PL) Darts when he defeated fellow Scot Peter Wright 7-4 in Sheffield last Thursday.

Anderson followed up the birth of son Tai last Friday with a fine performance. He never trailed after taking a 2-0 lead early on, and a showpiece 105 checkout of outer bull and two double tops saw him 6-2 up before completing the victory.

The tournament continues at the GE Gas & Oil Arena in Aberdeen tonight, with Anderson playing Adrian Lewis in a repeat of the 2011 PL final.
