Suffolk darts player Peter Wright has opened up a one-point lead at the top of the Premier League table after beating James Wade 7-5 in Glasgow.

The 46-year-old from Mendham took advantage of Phil Taylor's defeat at the hands of Adrian Lewis to take top spot.

Wright, who was in confident mood having secured his first televised title at the UK Open last weekend, held off a Wade fightback to secure maximum points.
