Daryl Gurney was the only winner as draws dominated night 13 of the Premier League in Birmingham, the Derry man remaining in top-four contention with an important 8-4 win over Peter Wright.

The 33-year-old averaged almost 100 and finishing three ton-plus checkouts amongst eight doubles from 14 attempts.

Wright took the opening two legs to gain the early advantage, only for Gurney to respond with checkouts of 104, 86 and 101.

The Scot took out 124 on the bull as he levelled in leg eight, but double ten edged Gurney back in front before a superb 12-darter broke throw, and he took the next two legs to complete a fine win.

Gurney now sits just a point adrift of the top four as he continues his bid for a first appearance in the Play-Offs.

"It was a must-win game for me so it's good to get the win," admitted Gurney. "I put a lot of pressure on myself going up there but I found my range after four or five legs.

"I've still got work to do and I probably need to get five points from my remaining three games, but I'll be trying my hardest to get to the Play-Offs."

Meanwhile, Michael Van Gerwen and James Wade served up a classic.

In-form Wade, who recently won three PDC titles, went 7-5 in front as he attempted to become just the second player to record a pair of regular-season victories over Van Gerwen, having beaten the Dutchman 7-3 in Exeter in February.

However, on his 30th birthday, Van Gerwen reeled off successive 12 and 13-dart legs just when he needed them to secure a 7-7 draw.

That was enough to maintain his one-point lead at the the top of the table ahead of Rob Cross, who drew with Gerwyn Price earlier in the night after surviving four match darts.

Mensur Suljovic battled back from 6-2 down to rescue a draw against last year's runner-up Michael Smith.
