Taylor to take on Sherrock as a guest in live-streamed event

Phil Taylor will return for his second special guest appearance in Modus’ online live streamed league on Friday, where he’ll take on ‘Queen of the Palace’ Fallon Sherrock and three-time world champion Martin Adams.

‘The Power’ will feature in five games on Friday evening, although like last week, the matches will be contested over a best of seven legs format and his results will not count towards the overall league table.

The 16-time world champion enjoyed a successful debut last Thursday, winning four of his five ties before succumbing to Russian World Cup captain Boris Koltsov in his fifth and final clash.

However, the Stoke-on-Trent veteran defeated his old foe Adams, former world champion Scott Mitchell, Challenge Tour star Jason Askew and emerging Dutch star Wessel Nijman, posting a ton-plus average in his deciding-leg victory over Askew.

‘A Night At The Darts’ is approaching the end of its third week and it features six players competing in a round-robin format. Sherrock and Adams are among the participants, as are ever-presents David Evans and Nijman, as well as debutants Kyle McKinstry and Michael Warburton.

Evans was the winner of Modus’ inaugural ‘Icons of Darts’ event earlier this month and he tops this week’s table with 10 wins from his 12 matches, whilst Sherrock has claimed five victories from her 12 tussles to date – winning three of her four matches on Wednesday night.

Sherrock also competed as a special guest in the live-streamed league last Saturday, but the 25-year-old now gets the opportunity to lock horns with the most successful player in the sport’s history in a star-studded line-up.

Taylor will be bidding to repeat last week’s victories over Adams and Nijman, who he defeated 4-0 and 4-2 respectively. The 59-year-old also takes on league leader Evans and World Masters semi-finalist Warburton, with Northern Ireland’s McKinstry sitting out of tomorrow’s action.

All matches are streamed exclusively on Modus’ YouTube channel from 5:30pm and Taylor kicks off proceedings against Development Tour star Nijman – who is aiming to win the league phase for the third consecutive week.
