Target's Glen Durrant moved to the top of the Premier League with a 7-4 win over former champion Gary Anderson on Week Three in Cardiff.

Three-time Lakeside winner "Duzza" took the opening three legs and then maintained his advantage with a typically solid display to remain unbeaten in this year's competition.

"That feels good" said Glen, "I didn't think I played my best darts, I didn't think Gary played his best, but a 97 average - I'll take that every day of the week... he's the third-best player ever in my eyes."

Durrant knocked world number one Michael van Gerwen off the top of the table, after MvG suffered his first defeat of the campaign to Target's UK Open Champion Nathan Aspinall.

"The Asp" averaged more than 101 and hit 54% of his doubles in a superb display to earn his first televised victory against the Dutchman (by a score line of 7-5) and move up to third in the table.

"I'm absolutely buzzing, it was a big game for me tonight" said Nathan.

"I think I deserved more than the defeat I had last week, and it was all about how I bounced back. To produce my best performance of the league this year against the world number one means a lot."

Rob Cross could not make it a clean sweep for #TeamTarget on the night, but very nearly escaped with a point against a superb Peter Wright.

The action now moves to Dublin for Week Four next Thursday, where Cross takes on Anderson, and the night will get underway with an all-Target clash between Aspinall and Durrant.

Before that though, we have live ProTour action from Wigan with Players Championships 5 and 6, which you can watch live on PDC TV.
