Dave Chisnall hit form in Belfast
Dave Chisnall says he’s “in with a shout” after moving two points behind the top four as he capitalised on his double-header in Belfast with wins over Adrian Lewis and Phil Taylor.
Chisnall opened the night by claiming his first win since week five in Exeter – when he also doubled up, in the absence of Michael van Gerwen – by seeing off Adrian Lewis 7-3.
He then returned to the stage to defeat Phil Taylor 7-2 in the night’s final fixture, averaging 104 as he won his fifth game of the season and completed a memorable night.

Two wins helped the 2015 Premier League semi-finalist Chisnall move two points behind the top four ahead of next week’s trip to Birmingham where he takes on world No 1 Van Gerwen.
“It’s been a great night,” said Chisnall. “I’m very pleased with how it’s gone and I’m happy to have got the four points tonight.
“I’ve been playing well and hitting lots of 180s but in the last two weeks I’ve not hit the doubles at the crucial times and today I did.
“I’m in with a shout and if I can keep playing like I have tonight then there’s no reason I can’t make it into the top four”
Chisnall notched up his first win since week five of the Premier League by beating Adrian Lewis in Belfast
