Not sure why they refer to Gurney as a hometown hero in Belfast when he comes from Derry/Londonderry which is 70 miles away.
This is why the aliens won't visit us.
Bloody hell, he is alive!

ROB CROSS is sitting pretty at the top of the Unibet Premier League and feeling fresh for the run-in ahead of his meeting with Peter Wright in Liverpool on Thursday.

Cross has enjoyed a successful second Premier League campaign so far, with six wins from his last seven outings leaving him well placed to reach The O2 for back-to-back Play-Offs appearances.

The former World Champion's next assignment sees him face 2017 finalist Wright at the M&S Bank Arena, and Cross is feeling confident of sustaining his high level of performance for the remaining six matches of the season.

“I believe I’m better this year. I’m not fighting myself to grind out results like I was this time last year," said Cross, who will open the show in Liverpool against Wright on Thursday night.

"The busy schedule is mayhem but it's a good mayhem! I've managed my time a lot better this year, I'm enjoying life and I'm enjoying my darts so no complaints

"I spent a lot of last year as a sponge, learning about playing at the top level of the sport week-in, week-out but I didn't really develop as I would've liked but this year I'm improving.

"First of all my aim is to qualify for the Play-Offs and then look to top the table, which would be an amazing thing for me to do.

"Peter was world number two for a long time, he's a player I would never take for granted. If I take my chances I'll win but if I don't I'll lose - it's as simple as that."

Cross' last two Premier League matches have seen him defeat Jeffrey de Zwaan and Daryl Gurney in front of their home crowds in Rotterdam and Belfast.

The world number two admitted he faced difficult times in both matches, but held his nerve to pick up a vital four point haul in his bid to claim a maiden Premier League title.

"I walked out in Belfast and it felt like I'd just started the Premier League again, I felt so fresh," Cross added.

"It was all about big scoring and taking my chances with a lot of last darts in hand.

"I felt a bit absorbed by the crowd in Belfast in the first leg but Daryl never got going and I took advantage of that.

"The crowd went quieter more quickly than the previous week, which threw me a bit, but it was very pleasing to get that win in Belfast."

Night 11 of the Unibet Premier League in Liverpool will be shown live on Sky Sports, worldwide through the PDC's broadcast partners, and through video.pdc.tv for Rest of the World Subscribers.

THE 2019 Unibet Premier League continues with Night 11 at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on Thursday, as Michael van Gerwen and Michael Smith face-off in a repeat of the 2018 final.

Van Gerwen produced a sensational 112.37 average in his 11-4 defeat of Smith in last year's showdown at The O2 to lift his fourth Premier League title, and the Dutchman repeated the feat in the 2018/19 World Championship Final.

The opening night of the 2019 in Premier League in Newcastle saw Van Gerwen and Smith collide in yet another big occasion between the pair, with Van Gerwen once again prevailing 7-5.

Van Gerwen has topped the pile every year since his 2013 debut season but currently sits in second place behind Rob Cross, and the world number one knows the pressure is on to maintain his proud record.

"It won't be an easy game against Michael," said Van Gerwen, who recovered from 5-1 down to salvage a 7-7 draw with Gerwyn Price in Belfast on Night Ten.

"In our first game it was very close but I found a brilliant leg at the end and that can make all the difference.

"I'm feeling good and I feel like I can make a really good performance and it should be a great game if we both play like we can."

Meanwhile, Smith believes he has no more margin for error if he is to reach the Play-Offs for a second successive season.

Smith has struggled to hit the heights of his memorable 2018 Premier League campaign, with just eight points to show from his ten games this campaign seeing him rooted to the foot of the table.

"I've got to win all the games left now. I can do it, I know I can because I've done it before," said Smith, who famously whitewashed Raymond van Barneveld 7-0 in Liverpool in 2018.

"It's getting harder to tell myself I'm not playing badly, but I had a killer instinct last year which I need to find again if I'm going to turn this season around.

"I'll keep on fighting, I've had the benefit of a few days resting at home ahead of a big night in Liverpool where I'll be giving absolutely everything to win."

With six games remaining for the eight remaining players, the battle is intensifying for the four places in the Play-Offs at The O2 on May 23.

Table-topper Cross has been in scintillating form in his second Premier League campaign, winning six of his last seven outings, and his next assignment sees him face 2017 finalist Peter Wright, who currently sits two points outside the top four in seventh.

Former World Champion Cross is feeling confident of sustaining his high level of performance for the remaining six matches of the season and ending it with back-to-back Play-Off appearances.

“I believe I’m better this year. I’m not fighting myself to grind out results like I was this time last year," said Cross, who will open the show in Liverpool against Wright on Thursday night.

"I spent a lot of last year as a sponge, learning about playing at the top level of the sport week-in, week-out but I didn't really develop as I would've liked but this year I'm improving.

"Peter was world number two for a long time, he's a player I would never take for granted. If I take my chances I'll win but if I don't I'll lose - it's as simple as that."

Third-placed Mensur Suljovic comes into Night 11 on the back of four wins from his last five Premier League matches, but he faces Price, who will be hoping to repeat his Night Five win over Suljovic to stay in the Play-Off hunt.

James Wade and Daryl Gurney are tied on 11 points in fourth and fifth place respectively, with Gurney out to avenge his shock 7-0 loss to Wade in Aberdeen.

Night 11 of the Unibet Premier League in Liverpool will be shown live on Sky Sports, worldwide through the PDC's broadcast partners, and through video.pdc.tv for Rest of the World Subscribers.

Not the greatest odds this weekend outside the usual 180 markets that are easy money.

Only bet outside of them for me is MvG and Cross both to win minus 3.5 legs odds over 7-1.

Bet of the night for me is Cross. Got 5/6 from Corals.

Only other bet for me was a Cross, Price, Wade and MVG accumulator at 10.5/1

Very good opening game. Cross v MvG the decider for top next week. Football for me now and catch up on the darts later. Expect a close game next up between Gezzy and Mensur went for a draw in the comp.
