Darts – Smith targets finals night

Michael Smith is eyeing a place at the Premier League finals night after hitting top form on Judgement Night in Liverpool. Smith, 14/1 with bet365 to win the Premier League title, dished out a 7-0 whitewash to Raymond van Barneveld at the Echo Arena on Thursday evening to maintain his lofty position in second place behind Michael van Gerwen in the standings. And Smith was delighted with his performance, while also looking forward to the weeks ahead, as he aims to secure a top-four finish and a place at the end-of-season finale. He told the official PDC website: "I knew this kind of performance was coming - you can't be at your best every single match, but to get close to it is really nice. It shows that the hard work's paying off. "I've not been playing well in the Premier League, but I've still been winning. I'm just glad to get past Judgement Night and I can relax now and start looking forward now and focus on the top four."
