Price Believes “A game” Will Get Him Top Four Place

Gerwyn Price believes his “A game” will get him through to the Unibet Premier League Play-Offs at the O2.

The Welsh wonder has been a huge hit in this year’s tournament after struggling 12 months ago.

Now he’s aiming to dump 2018 World Champion Rob Cross in Birmingham tonight as he bids to secure a top four slot.

Price is still on a high after beating Michael Smith in front of his own Cardiff fans a week ago which included two sensational 170 finishes.

He said: “I never ever feel pressure but early on in the game against Michael I was up against it and I was glad to get over the line

“In the first two or three legs I was a bit overwhelmed by the support I got, and to win in front of the Welsh fans was a special experience.

“Once I got the game with Michael (van Gerwen) out of the way then I knew I could beat everyone else I had left to play.

“I managed to get a point against Michael and from here on in I’m targeting two points in every match.

“Even if they play their ‘A game’ against my ‘A game’ I feel I’m going to win. I’m so focused on my goal of staying in the top four and that’s my aim for the next four weeks.”

With four games left to play, the battle is on for the four places in the Play-Offs at The O2 on May 23, with just two points separating the four players placed third to sixth.

Mensur Suljovic currently sits just outside the coveted top four places in fifth, and he will face 2018 runner-up Smith in the opening game of the night in Birmingham.

Daryl Gurney suffered defeat to Suljovic in a crucial clash in Cardiff, but the Players Championship Finals winner will look to bounce back against Peter Wright.
