Michael Smith is bidding to maintain his advantage at the top of the Unibet Premier League table as the tournament visits Westpoint Exeter on Thursday for the season’s fifth league night.
Smith is the only player to have recorded four wins so far this season, having extended his unbeaten record with victory over Simon Whitlock in their top-of-the-table clash in Berlin last week.
The former World Youth Champion comes up against Raymond van Barneveld in Exeter, and is aiming to retain his two-point cushion at the top of the table.
Whitlock, the 2012 runner-up, is aiming to get back to winning ways following his loss to Smith when he faces Welshman Gerwyn Price on Thursday.
Reigning Premier League champion Michael van Gerwen picked up his third win of the season by defeating Daryl Gurney in Berlin, and now faces Austrian star Mensur Suljovic, who claimed his first Premier League win last week.
World Champion Rob Cross is looking to continue his revival after claiming back-to-back victories in the past fortnight, with the Hastings thrower up against Gary Anderson in Exeter.
The night’s other game sees Peter Wright prepares for this weekend’s defence of his UK Open title against Northern Irish star Daryl Gurney, who has yet to claim victory this season.
