Michael van Gerwen stays top of Premier League in Dublin

Darts

Michael van Gerwen maintained his position at the top of the Premier League table with a 7-5 victory over James Wade in Dublin.

The world No. 1 came back from 4-2 behind, taking out 138 in the final leg to deny Wade, set on 41, a draw and move two points ahead of Peter Wright and Raymond van Barneveld.

Wright produced a sensational comeback to salvage a 6-6 draw against struggling Dave Chisnall.

Chisnall raced into a 6-3 lead, throwing seven 180s, but Wright, inactive in Cardiff last week following Kim Huybrechts' withdrawal for family reasons, roared back to claim a point.

Phil Taylor, in his 200th Premier League game, and Adrian Lewis boosted their playoff hopes courtesy of 7-3 victories over Van Barneveld and Gary Anderson respectively.

Van Barneveld then bounced back from his earlier defeat in his second visit to the oche, hammering Wade 7-2 in the final match of night 10.
