It’s always a big night for the Premier League when Unicorn’s Gary Anderson plays on the Glasgow stage, which will also see his Unicorn teammate Michael Smith take on Michael van Gerwen in a top of the table clash.

Smith won his opening four Premier League matches and bounced back to winning ways with a 7-1 demolition of Wright last week - but insists that facing the world number one will be a true test of his form.

"This game and the game against Gary Anderson were the two I was looking forward to when I got back in the Premier League," said Smith. "I love playing Michael.

"He's one of the nice lads, we have a laugh but when we're playing he gets on with the game. He believes in his ability, the way I do, and hopefully there will be some fireworks this week.

"It could go six-all and be over in ten minutes with how quick it is, but I'm really looking forward to that game.

"I know I'm playing okay, and you want to play the best players in the world to see what else you need to improve on. I'll know that if I lose what I need to work on."

Scottish superstar Anderson has drawn his last three matches and is aiming to defeat fourth-placed Simon Whitlock on home soil to avoid being drawn into the battle against elimination on Judgement Night.

"It's good to be back in Scotland," said Anderson. "We only do it twice a year and the reception from the fans in Glasgow is always fantastic.

"Simon's played really well so far this season so I've got to be good. I've been nicking points here and there recently but it's got to come good at some point and hopefully that will be this week."
