‘Superchin’ Daryl Gurney remains upbeat ahead of tomorrow’s showdown at the O2 in London as the Premier League play-offs take place in front of a packed audience.
Gurney takes on Michael van Gerwen in the opening match of the evening, but ‘Superchin’ won’t be phased by the occassion or the prospect of facing the World no.1. Gurney has certainly ‘got one over’ on the Green machine as the Northern Irishman has recorded back-to-back victories over the Dutchman.
The World no.1 has won the Premier League for the last three years consecutively, but Gurney is expecting a strong performance from MVG, but ‘Superchin’ is more than confident that he can etch his name into the history books.
‘Superchin’ spoke to the media on Wednesday ahead of tomorrow’s action, and the World no.3 knows that the odds are stacked against him, but he isn’t intending on rolling over.
“I’m absolutely delighted to make it to The O2, it really is a dream come true and now anything is possible,” said Gurney, who defeated Van Gerwen to win the Players Championship Finals in November
“To play in front of a massive crowd at such a famous darts venue is another tick in the box of what I want to achieve in my career and I’m already looking forward to it.
“Of the four players I’ll probably be the fourth favourite, but being the underdog doesn’t bother me as I know what I can do.
“Whenever the pressure is on me, for some reason I play my best darts. When I’m playing the best players in the world it takes me to another level and that’s what I’ll be aiming to reproduce in London.”
