James Wade continues brilliant Premier League form by winning Week 12 in Dublin

Wade produces dream night as he tightens his grip on a play-off spot.

James Wade continued his hugely impressive Premier League form by winning week 12 to continue his push for the play-offs.

Wade became the third player to win multiple nights in the newly revamped competition, beating Jonny Clayton in the final to claim his second win.

The final defeat was enough to extend Clayton's lead in the table, while Wade is now level on points with Michael van Gerwen in second.

Week 12 started well for Wade, with him beating van Gerwen 6-5 in the opening round. He then produced a masterclass to down Gerwyn Price 6-1 in the semis.

Clayton, meanwhile, had to go through Peter Wright and Michael Smith to get his chance to win what would have been a fourth night, but Wade edged it 6-5.

"I am so happy," said Wade. "It is up there with performances and I am so lucky to be involved in it still so I am very happy.

"Statistically by a country mile it was the best performance.

"But I have been involved in other games where you are right up against it."

The highlight of Wade's night was probably the semi-final demolition of Price, and he said he was surprised when he learned just how well he had played in it.

"When I walked away I thought I got so lucky but when people relayed the statistics I was like 'wow'.

"I don't think you will ever stop learning.

"I have learnt a lot from the games and the day you stop trying is the day you stop moving forward.

"I am not here to make the numbers up. I am fighting against great darts players and legends of the game but I still think I can finish top."
