Phil Taylor moved up to second place in the Premier League table after beating his rival Raymond van Barneveld 8-3 in Exeter on Thursday.

The 50-year-old set up a crucial clash with unbeaten Gary Anderson as he picked up his third consecutive win.

Stoke-on-Trent's Taylor said: "I can't wait to play Gary Anderson next week now. It will be brilliant for me and I'm really up for it now.

"Raymond had some chances early on but his head dropped a bit."

World champion Adrian Lewis was outclassed by Mark Webster, who produced a sensational performance to average 110 in powering past Lewis 8-2.

Webster bounced back superbly from an 8-1 trouncing by Anderson a week ago to leave Lewis suffering his third defeat in a row in the Premier League.

Anderson's brilliant start to the Premier League continued, as an 8-3 win over James Wade gave him a fourth successive victory and a two-point lead at the top of the table.

Simon Whitlock picked up his second victory with an 8-1 romp against Terry Jenkins.
