Chris Vaughan was in sensational form in the Knack Darts Premier League when he secured two victories without dropping a leg.

Vaughan romped to a 5-0 victory over Dougie Hall in his first game, while in his second, Vaughan again eased to a 5-0 success over Eddie Ashman.

Graham Mullen powered to three convincing wins when he saw off David Brown (5-1), Paul McGowan (5-2) and John Watson (5-1).

Neil Rose also celebrated two victories in style without dropping a leg.

Rose defeated Graeme Hills 5-0 and then demolished Eddie Ashman 5-0.

Spiller Henderson picked up maximum points when he beat Darren Patton 5-1 and Anthony Gale 5-0.

Dave Prins closed the gap at the top to just one point when he beat Anthony Gale 5-0, before thumping Matthew Hodgson 5-0 in his second game.

Richard Selby produced a brilliant display against Darren Patton, winning 5-1.

In his earlier match, Selby edged to a 5-3 victory over Andrew Ambler.

Tony Wood managed to get over the line in his first game against Rob McCluskey, winning 5-3.

However, Wood will have rued some missed doubles in his second game as he was beaten 5-1 by Anth Skelton.

Skelton shared the spoils in his other game against Dan Gillibrand.

Will Neave picked up three of a possible nine points upon his return.

Firstly, Neave succumbed to a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Davy Richardson and then Neave found himself on the wrong end of a 5-3 result against Davey Thompson.

At the third time of asking, Neave managed to pick up a victory when he beat Philly Dunn 5-3.

Graeme Hills was a 5-2 winner over Alan Smith, while Smith was a 5-2 loser in his second game against Philly Dunn.

Paul Williams bagged all six points on offer when he beat Dan Gillibrand 5-0, before easing to a 5-1 win over Davey Thompson.

Andrew Ambler will be thanking Rob McCluskey for missing countless doubles as he pinched a point.

Matthew Hodgson was a comfortable 5-1 winner over Ross Guy in his other game of the night.

However, Guy was then beaten 5-1 by Paul McGowan with the latter hitting a brilliant 12 darter.

Dougie Hall and David Brown couldn’t be parted during their game as it ended in a 4-4 draw.

Davy Richardson took advantage of an out of sorts John Watson when he romped to a 5-0 win.

Watson faced off against Eddie Ashman in the battle of the TRI-PODS and despite Watson lobbing himself into an early 2-0 lead, Ashman showed what he has at his disposal when he rallied back with a 111 finish in an 18 darter before levelling the match with a 19 darter of his own.

The game ended up going the distance as the pair couldn’t be split and had to settle for a point each.
