Dennis Priestley says his old rival Phil Taylor is 'better than ever', as he prepares to face 'The Power' again on the big stage of the Premier League.
Veteran Priestley will be a big hit with the Yorkshire crowd as he takes part in the Premier League once again in Sheffield on Thursday.
The Mexborough man will play 14-time world champion Taylor in a challenge match as a result of Wayne Mardle's absence from the League due to illness.
Stoke's Adrian Lewis, a semi-finalist in last year's Premier League and the current world number seven, also comes in to play in Sheffield, and takes on Raymond van Barneveld.
The two league matches on the night see Terry Jenkins meet John Part, and James Wade face Jelle Klaasen.
