PDC McCoys Premier League-Week 7 Preview

The McCoys premier league rolls in to Cardiff this Thursday with some more mouth watering matches on the cards.

March 21 - Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff

Andy Hamilton v Simon Whitlock
Gary Anderson v Michael van Gerwen
Robert Thornton v Adrian Lewis
Wes Newton v Phil Taylor
James Wade v Raymond van Barneveld

First on stage is Hamilton v Whitlock. Both have shown great form of late, both winning there last games in comfortable form. The Hammer never knows when to give up and the high scoring Wizard doing his magic when he needs it.

Anderson against van Gerwen is next on. This should be a cracker, both had good weekends at Wigan with Anderson having a 9 Darter and van Gerwen missing double 12 for his. Both had good weeks on stage last week too in Manchester.

Thornton v Lewis is third on. The Thorn is in the form of his life at the moment and Lewis is fighting for his premier league life. Will the manager split between Jackpot and Keith Deller affect him, i don't think so!

The Warrior takes on the Power in the fourth match. The power is without doubt off form at the moment, whether its his new darts not working for him or just poor form you can never count him out. Newton too is fighting for his premier league life with just 3 points on the board with 3 matches remaining before the cut off point. Every game is a must win for him now.

Wade v Barneveld is last on stage. Wade lost his last game in the premier league and Barney drew his, with both sitting high up the table. They have a lot to prove this week and know doubt will be going all out for the win.

This weeks Walk-on girls are Holly James and new girl Ali Drew and Both girls are from Cardiff. We have already seen Holly at the premier league in Exeter but Ali is a new face for the darts family to watch. I'm sure you will agree they are both a couple of Welsh Beauties. Good luck to both, and knock em dead! as they say.
