PDC World Championship: Taylor to face Anderson in final

3 January 2015 : Phil Taylor booked his place in the PDC World Championship final after fourth seed Gary Anderson beat defending champion Michael van Gerwen.

Taylor, 54, the 16-time champion, eased through 6-2 against former winner Raymond van Barneveld at Alexandra Palace.

Scot Anderson beat Dutchman Van Gerwen 6-3 to reach his second world final.

“The more pressure I put on him the more he missed,” Anderson, 44, told Sky Sports.

Anderson finished with a 50% checkout success and a three-dart average of 102.2 against his younger rival, who missed four darts to take a 4-3 lead after fighting back from 3-1 down.

Taylor raced into a 2-0 lead against Dutchman Van Barneveld, only for the 14th seed, who beat Stephen Bunting in a thrilling quarter-final on Friday, to level at 2-2.

But Taylor dominated the remainder of the match to reach his 20th in total.

“It was a bit of walk in the first two sets and then he came back and it was nip and tuck,” he said.

“I thought to myself, ‘You’re in the semi-final, come on’ and I pushed on a bit.”
