SIMON WHITLOCK is aiming to take revenge on Raymond van Barneveld when the pair meet in the 888.com Premier League Darts in Aberdeen on Thursday.
Van Barneveld produced one of the Premier League’s finest displays when the pair met in Nottingham in the second week of this year’s tournament, hitting four ton-plus finishes in an 8-3 defeat of Whitlock.
The Australian, though, could move level with van Barneveld on ten points in the Premier League table with a victory at the AECC in their clash.
SIMON WHITLOCK began his challenge for Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship glory with a straight sets win over Steve Evans at Alexandra Palace on Saturday night.
Australian ace Whitlock, along with eight other players and over 1,000 fans, braved the snow in north London to arrive at Alexandra Palace for his opening game, and dropped only two legs against Evans.
