Whitlock v Anderson: Wizard to show bouncebackability

expect Anderson to be a little rusty around the edges going into this match

Simon Whitlock became only the third player in Premier League history to be whitewashed when he lost 8-0 to James Wade in Cardiff last week. Such is the relentless nature of the competition; he’ll be attempting to bounce back this week against defending champion Gary Anderson.

The Scot didn’t play last week due to the untimely death of his father, and it means that he goes into this week’s game joint on points with Kevin Painter and Andy Hamilton at the bottom of the table. Anderson isn’t known for practicing hard at the best of times, and given that he has had much more important things on his mind of late I doubt he has spent much time in front of the practice board at home. I expect Anderson to be a little rusty around the edges going into this match.

The Aussie also holds sway in the recent head-to-head results between the pair. His win in Glasgow, in front of a partisan Scottish crowd, backed up victory in the World Championships at the end of last season.

There are obviously concerns about how last week’s defeat will effect his confidence, but Whitlock isn’t the sort of player to dwell on past results and, in fact, I expect the whitewash will only spur him on to put things right this week.
