Peter Manley was the latest Premier League participant to knock yet more wind out of Phil Taylor’s sails, but Manley has his sights set on another victory in his upcoming match against Phil’s protege Adrian Lewis.
Manley takes on Adrian Lewis at the BICC on the South coast in week five of the Whyte and Mackay Premier League, aiming to push himself into semi-final contention.
“It was a great result for me against Phil but it is important to keep that form going,” he said. ‘One Dart’ has produced some spectacular finishing so far and a win and two draws from his first four matches isn’t a bad haul.
“I am very pleased with my doubles….more often than not, it has been spot on and I will have to be just as good in Bournemouth because Adrian Lewis has also been doing well.”
Lewis is currently third in the table but it could all change again. It is a ‘new’ Manley on the oche these days – much more relaxed. “I just want to enjoy it all,” he said. “It was starting to become a little bit of a chore, so I have adopted a more relaxed approach and it seems to be working.”
Last year, Lewis and Manley won one match apiece in their head-to-head clashes….8-4 the score on both occasions.
Of course, it was Manley’s first TV victory over Taylor since 1999 and it will also be a huge night for ‘The Power’ in Bournemouth.
