Week Fifteen. The Betway Premier League of Darts makes its way to the south coast. To a place where, according to the 2001 census, the majority of Jedi’s in the UK live. But who will the force be with when the crème de la crème of darts arrive at the Brighton Centre? It may hold the lowest capacity in the competition, but it certainly packs a big punch. Expect a sell-out crowd for the final league night of the Premier League.

The play-off places have been confirmed. And the shock story is that Phil Taylor has failed to reach the Premier League Darts final four for the first time ever in his career and the tournament’s 11-year history.

The Power needed a win over Gary Anderson to keep his hopes of snatching a top four spot alive, but when the Scot moved into a 6-5 lead in Newcastle, it spelt the end for the 16-time World Champion.

Michael van Gerwen, Dave Chisnall, Gary Anderson and defending champion Raymond van Barneveld have had their places confirmed and will all be hoping to build momentum in Brighton ahead of the big finale at the O2 Arena.

Betway Premier League Rewind: Last year in Brighton…

Phil Taylor and Gary Anderson managed to secure their places in the Betway Premier League Darts playoffs with victories, as Michael van Gerwen topped the final league table for a second successive year.

Taylor completed his brilliant revival, after losing four of his opening five games, defeating Thornton 7-5 to seal third place in the final Premier League table.

Anderson, the 2011 Premier League Darts winner, sealed the final berth with a 7-4 victory over Raymond van Barneveld, a six-time semi-finalist who had already secured his place in the top four.

The night however ended in tears for Peter Wright. The Scot was in the top four for the entire competition, but was piped to the post at the end. Despite an impressive 161 checkout that brought the sell-out Brighton crowd to its feet, he was denied the chance to guarantee a playoff spot in a 7-5 defeat to MVG, ending the season in fifth place.
