Humphries is leading the Premier League darts table after picking up his third successive win with the roadshow moving on to Belfast next.
Teenage sensation Luke Littler has made a phenomenal start to his debut season, sitting third with 11 points and heads into Nottingham in fine form after winning the Belgian Open.

The 17-year-old starlet has been fired into the limelight ever since his phenomenal performance at the 2023-24 World Championships.

The wonderkid was the youngest-ever finalist at the prestigious tournament but was beaten on the night by World No1 Luke Humphries.

Since then, however, Littler has picked up his first title as a pro, winning the Bahrain Darts Masters.

But the teen sensation did lose in the Dutch Darts Masters final to Michael van Gerwen.

After the Worlds, Littler was invited to play in the Premier League, and the 17-year-old has continued to raise eyebrows on his debut season.
