Michael Smith booked his place in the Premier League Play-Offs after celebrating his second nightly victory of the season in Sheffield last time out.

Night 16 of the darting roadshow saw the final night of league phase action take place at the Utilita Arena, as Smith claimed the spoils to clinch the last remaining place in next Thursday's Play-Offs.

Nathan Aspinall and Smith were embroiled in a straight shoot-out for qualification, with Luke Littler, Luke Humphries and Michael van Gerwen already assured of their spots at London’s O2.

The St Helens star produced a devastating display of finishing to topple Aspinall in their winner-takes-all quarter-final, converting successive 136 and 132 finishes in the closing stages of his 6-3 victory.

Smith then booked his place in the Night 16 showpiece with a deciding-leg victory over Littler, rallying from 4-1 down to record his fifth win over the World Finalist in seven Premier League matches.

The 33-year-old also fought back from 3-1 down to topple Humphries in Thursday’s decider, winning five straight legs to pocket the £10,000 winner’s prize.

Humphries fired in a stunning 170 checkout in leg four to establish an early buffer, although Smith replied with a brilliant 140 finish, before landing legs of 12, 14, 13 and 14 darts to prevail with a ton-plus average.

“To qualify and end the season with a win, it feels great,” reflected Smith, who will play Littler in the semi-finals next week. “I was literally drained after beating Nathan. I was really emotional because he’s one of my best friends, but I had a job to do tonight.

“I know I won the first week [in Cardiff], but to sign off with another one, I’m going into The O2 with a little bit of confidence. I’m really looking forward to next week. I know I’ve got a good record against Luke, but it doesn’t matter now.

“This is a different atmosphere, and it feels like a different tournament almost. You have to bring your best game, and hopefully I can bring some good form into next week.”
