Dave Chisnall not writing off Premier League play-off hopes ahead of clash with Gary Anderson tonight

Dave Chisnall has not given up on his play-off hopes for this year’s Premier League just yet.

The St Helens-born thrower sits at the bottom of the table heading into a clash with world number two Gary Anderson at the Echo Arena in Liverpool tonight.

Chisnall averaged a season-best 106.40 and hit seven 180s as he ended a three-game losing run with a draw against Peter Wright in Dublin last week.

And ahead of playing in front of his ‘home’ crowd on Merseyside this evening, Chzzy is hoping to maintain that form and keep his faint play-off hopes alive.

“It’s special, it’s probably one of my favourites to go to,” he said. “I’ll try to do what I did in Dublin and hopefully I get the two points.

“I’m trying and I’ll never write off being in the top four, but I’ve got to put games to bed. If I’m 6-3 up I’ve got to win them so I’ll work on that because I slacked off against Peter.

“My darts were straight, though, and that’s what I wanted – not going into the fives and ones.

“The 180s aren’t a problem – I can hit them when I’m playing really bad, but for me it’s keeping the dart straight and keeping it fluent.

“I’m feeling great at the moment and playing a lot better than I have done.”
