Josh Payne - Dutch Darts Masters

By Tom Beresford

Josh makes his exit from the Dutch Darts Masters as he suffered a 6-5 defeat to Mensur Suljovic But, what a match it was. 

Payne produced some superb stuff to move 4-2 ahead, but back came Suljovic as he levelled things up at 4-4. Suljovic then went on to miss two darts for a 5-4 lead, Payne then stepped in with a superb 110 finish to move within a leg of the match at 5-4. 

The Austrian broke straight back to force a deciding leg. Josh was waiting on tops for the match as he fired in a score of 134, but Suljovic didn’t give Payne a shot at it as he took out 70 for the match. It was yet another superb performance from Payne, and on another day the luck may of swing in Josh’s favour.
