All Stoke clash in Premier League

Potteries pride is at stake in the Premier League tonight.

Adrian Lewis who is lying in third place, takes on the man below him in the table Phil Taylor. 

The Power enters the battle in superb form after averaging 115 in his win over Dave Chisnall in Aberdeen, a performance which would have gained him the headlines had Michael van Gerwen not already broken his world record average. 

The 55-year-old six-time Premier League champion admitted: "I'm working hard at the moment, enjoying it and getting the rewards. It's not just about the darts but your concentration too now because it's so competitive, and my concentration is perfect. 

"Adrian's been playing really well and it's going to be another cracker with him. We know each other's games inside out and I know what he's going to do, but he'll know what to expect from me too." 

Lewis has also enjoyed a strong start to the season to follow on from his appearances in the finals of the Players Championship Finals and World Championship in recent months. 

"I'm playing well at the moment and I'm happy with how things are going," said Lewis, the 2011 Premier League runner-up. 

"I'll be ready for Phil and making sure I'm getting prepared because I've got to, with the way he's been playing. It's always special coming up against him and I can't wait."
