Thursday, 13 April at 20:00 (CAT) - Live on Kwesé Sports 1

It’s the 11th round of the 2017 Premier League darts season and this time Liverpool’s Echo Arena will be the venue for eight of the world’s leading darts players to face off. More significantly, it’s week two of the six-week countdown to the playoffs when those eight will be trimmed to four… stakes are getting high.

The player who will most want to take advantage this Thursday is Peter Wright. Like Raymond van Barneveld last week in Dublin, ‘Snakebite’ gets the chance to play twice this week. That said, the Scotsman will be wary of the fact that he's fixtured against the world’s two highest-ranked players in Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson. 

As such, it’s a pivotal stage of the season for Wright. If not from a ‘will-he, won’t he reach the playoffs’ perspective then definitely from the point of view that his confidence of beating two top players on the same night (which happens on playoff night) will be determined by his exploits in Liverpool.

Of course, pressure mounts across the board as the weeks towards the playoffs run out. In this regard bottom-placed Dave Chisnall and the two players directly above him, James Wade (who plays ‘Chizzy’) and Adrian Lewis (who meets the grand old master of darts, Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor), have to start winning to realistically stand a chance of cracking the top four.
