The Premier League heads to Nottingham on Thursday night as the battle to make May’s semi-finals continues.

It is a fierce contest at the top of the table with the top four players all on the same points and just one point separating the leading five men.

There is still time for him to make a recovery, but Raymond van Barneveld is struggling at the foot of the table, still looking for his first victory of the season.

A highlight of Thursday’s action will be Nathan Aspinall becoming the latest ‘contender’ in the competition, fresh off his UK Open title win and looking to get revenge over Michael Smith for knocking him out of the World Championship in the semi-finals.
