Rampant Anderson shows credentials at Grand Slam of Darts
Gary Anderson is convinced he has what it takes to win the Daily Mirror Grand Slam of Darts.
The Scotsman was brilliant in his demolition of Colin Osborne last night – not losing one leg against his own throw – to come through with a convincing 10-3 victory.
Anderson averaged a very tidy 98.54 with three darts and will now face Wayne Jones tomorrow, following the Wolverhampton man’s 10-6 victory over Robert Thornton.
He may be in good form, but Anderson knows he will have his work cut out against the home favourite.
He said: “My finishing was great and I’m delighted to be through. It will be different against Wayne Jones on Saturday because he’s in great form.
“He’s a local lad and will have plenty of support but I’m confident and I’ll give it a good go.”
The pair have already met in the competition this year, with Anderson coming out on top 5-2 in their Group B clash last Sunday.
That win has taken the ‘The Flying Scotsman’ ahead of Jones in their head-to-head meetings, with Anderson now leading 5-4 after nine games.
Although it promises to be an extremely tight encounter, Anderson should come out on top after being installed as third favourite for the tournament at 7/1.
Jones will not roll over though and his odds for the championship have now come in to 33/1 following his impressive win against Thornton – everything’s set for a cracker.
