World Champion v Grand Slam Champion

This Thursday in Dublin sees the current World Champion Peter “Snakebite” Wright take on reigning back-to-back Grand Slam champion Gerwyn “The Iceman” Price. This rivalry is building up as one of the greatest match-ups we’ve seen in the game with both men capable of scintillating scoring and spectacular big finishes under pressure. Over the last 6 months this rivalry has been fascinating to watch with the duo each playing the best darts of their career, despite previous criticism that neither player could get over the line in the big moments. Peter and Gezzy have well and truly laid that criticism to rest, taking arguably the biggest major wins of the last 12 months. Snakebite’s recent World Championship title has sealed his place as one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, but the Scot acknowledges just how good Gezzy is when we spoke to him. “Playing Gezzy is always amazing, his passion for the game is incredible and it spills out on stage whenever he performs and I love that. I may not be able to show that in the same way but inside I share equally the same passion and I always look forward to playing him” Speaking ahead of the clash in Dublin, Gezzy said “Peter is now the World Champion and he proved without doubt how capable he is to play at the top of the game, beating the World no.1 on the biggest stage to lift the trophy” “Peter and I faced each other in the final last weekend and he got the better of me that time, hitting that 170 out to win. I let him slip and bombed some chances then but I won’t let that happen again Thursday and I’m looking forward to playing him again” Both gladiators will close out Thursday night's action from 3Arena in Dublin and it’s always interesting to see how their differing approaches to the game will get on. Gezzy is a quicker rhythm thrower whilst Peter is a more old-school player, with a more deliberate style on the oche. One thing is for sure though, we’re all looking forward to see the superb game that they’ll put on Thursday night. Night Four will be broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK, on PDCTV for Rest of the World Subscribers and through the PDC's worldwide broadcast partners including DAZN and RTL7. 2020 Unibet Premier League Night Four Thursday February 27 3Arena, Dublin Glen Durrant v Nathan Aspinall Rob Cross v Gary Anderson Daryl Gurney v Michael Smith William O'Connor v Michael van Gerwen Gerwyn Price v Peter Wright
