Dave Chisnall takes on world champion Gary Anderson in Exeter as he looks to stay unbeaten in the Betway Premier League Darts on Thursday night.

The in-form Morecambe ace, the joint league leader alongside Michael van Gerwen, faces Anderson as two of the sport’s biggest 180 hitters come face-to-face at the sold-out Westpoint Arena.

Chisnall, who averaged 107 as he defeated Kim Huybrechts in Belfast last Thursday, said: “I’m really looking forward to this game.

“We’re both the same type of player - we like to score heavily and even though we miss the odd double sometimes we’ll be giving it our best.

“I’ve always looked up to Gary, but I’m going to go up there and hopefully beat him.

“I’m enjoying the season and when the darts go like they did last week it’s a good feeling.”

Elsehwere, van Gerwen meets Peter Wright in a repeat of the 2014 World Championship final, Adrian Lewis takes on Stephen Bunting and Phil Taylor meets James Wade in a repeat of the 2008 and 2010 Premier League finals with reigning champion Raymond van Barneveld bidding for his first-ever win over Kim Huybrechts in the night’s other game in Exeter.

Chisnall against Anderson is the last match of the night on Sky Sports 1 with the action starting at 7pm.
