Premier League Darts: Phil Taylor to meet Peter Wright in play-offs

Six-time champion Phil Taylor last won the Premier League in 2012

Phil Taylor set up a Premier League play-off semi-final with Peter Wright after claiming the last qualifying spot in Aberdeen.

Taylor already knew he was through before his 7-5 win over Adrian Lewis as Dave Chisnall could only draw against James Wade.

Michael van Gerwen will meet Gary Anderson in next Thursday's other last-four match at London's O2 Arena.

Van Gerwen topped the table after beating Scotland's Anderson 7-4.

Fellow Scot Wright finished second to qualify for his first play-offs with a 7-1 victory over already-eliminated Raymond van Barneveld.

Taylor will go in search of his seventh Premier League crown buoyed by a convincing win over reigning champion Van Gerwen in week 14.

The Stoke thrower, 56, is retiring after the 2018 PDC World Championship concludes in January.
