Anderson: "Don't write me off"

GARY ANDERSON extended his unbeaten run to 22 matches with a second Players Championship win in 48 hours and blasted “don’t write me off”. It was the Flying Scotsman’s third title in seven days as he swept aside Jeffrey de Zwaan 6-2 in the final in Barnsley on Sunday. Ando, 47, won the Coral UK Open a week ago, then beat Rob Cross and Peter Wright 6-0 on the way to the Players Championship on Saturday. After two draws in succession in the Premier League, Anderson now wants to stay on form for Thursday night in Nottingham against Raymond van Barneveld. He said: “I can still play, don’t write me off.It’s very hard to play your best darts all the time but I can still play the game, don’t worry about me. “These are the toughest days, to win these weekend tournaments. The standard is so high now but it’s nice to show the youngsters I’m still here. “This old boy can still throw a few darts. Seriously though, it’s been a good week for me. I’m enjoying it and it shows. “It’s been a good weekend. I feel really good right now and everything has been going in which is a great feeling. “It’s a decent run of 22 games but I won’t get carried away. I’m still not at my best, that’s for sure. I’ve got another gear or two. “But I’ll take that for a weekend’s work. I’ve struggled a bit in my last two Premier League games and had to dig out two draws. “That’s not good enough for the league. You need to keep winning and that’s why I’m down near the bottom. “I need to take this form into Nottingham on Thursday and start trying to get up into the top four so a gap doesn’t appear. “Raymond will be tough. He got a good win against Gerwyn Price last week and when Ray is confident he’s hard work. “But I’m feeling better every week, the back is holding up and as long as that improves I’ll give myself a chance to get results.” Only a handful of players have won weekend doubles in PDC history including Phil Taylor, Michael van Gerwen, James Wade and Robert Thornton. Yet Anderson, who trailed 5-1 in his opening game on Saturday to Terry Jenkins before winning 6-5, was never troubled thereafter. By Phil Lanning (@lannomedia)
