Gerwyn Price won the fifth and final event of the PDC Autumn Series on Wednesday night, his second consecutive triumph in a superb week for the Welshman.

Price downed Krzysztof Ratajski 8-5 in the final on Wednesday, which finished off a brilliant string of performances as his only average below 100 came in his last match of the day in Niedernhausen.

The Iceman tops the Autumn Series Order of Merit after beating Devon Petersen in Tuesday’s final and now feels he can beat anyone on the planet with his best form.

‘Winning yesterday put me at ease today,’ said Price. ‘There was less pressure, I was already happy with my week’s work.

‘With the pressure off it shows the kind of game I can play. I played brilliant all day. The final was my worst game but I got over the line.

‘I’m in a good place right now. I believe that my ‘A-game’ is better than anybody else’s.

‘I’m going into the World Series Finals [this Friday] with confidence and I’m looking forward to playing in front of a crowd again.’

Petersen may have lost Tuesday’s final but he had a week to remember after some fantastic displays, including a whitewash win over Michael van Gerwen, and managed a 9-darter against Dimitri van den Bergh on Wednesday.

The South African lost the match, but he achieved perfection and has booked his place in next month’s World Grand Prix thanks to his performances this week.

Peter Wright, Damon Heta and Michael van Gerwen were the other event winners over the last five days, with MVG showing some form but inconsistencies remain for the world number one.

The Dutchman was in good nick as he picked up two whitewash wins and a demolition of Glen Durrant en route to an 8-1 victory in the final over Mensur Suljovic on Monday.

However, his other four finishes were semi-final, last 64, last 32 and quarter-final, which he will consider well below par.

MVG, Wright, Price and Heta will all be at the World Series of Darts Finals this weekend in Salzburg.
