THE 2019 Unibet Premier League continues with Night Two at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Thursday, as Glen Durrant makes his highly-anticipated debut.
Three-time Lakeside Champion Durrant, who won his PDC Tour Card in January, will be the second Contender to compete following on from Chris Dobey’s eye-catching appearance in Newcastle on the opening night.
The road to Play-Offs night at The O2 continues in Glasgow, with Durrant taking on Players Champion Daryl Gurney in his first televised appearance as a PDC professional.
Four-time Premier League champion Michael van Gerwen got his quest for a fifth title off to a perfect start with a 7-5 victory over Michael Smith in Newcastle, and the world number one will be hoping to make it two from two against Mensur Suljovic.
Grand Slam of Darts champion Gerwyn Price claimed his first Premier League victory on the opening night, with a 7-4 triumph over Gurney.
Price suffered a torrid debut campaign in 2018 ending in an early elimination, and the Welshman is now keen to kick on from his positive start against Raymond van Barneveld, who will make his final appearance in Glasgow before retirement.
James Wade enjoyed a winning return to the Premier League scene against Van Barneveld in Newcastle, and he will meet former World Champion Rob Cross, while World Championship finalist Smith will meet world number three Peter Wright in the night’s opening tie.
The top four players at the end of 16 nights will face off in the Play-Offs at The O2 on May 23, while the ninth-placed player following Judgement Night in Rotterdam will face an early elimination.
