Dave Chisnall reaches the first major PDC final of his career by beating Justin Pipe in the last four of the World Grand Prix in Dublin.

Dave Chisnall has reached the first major PDC final of his career by beating Justin Pipe in the last four of the World Grand Prix in Dublin.

The 33-year-old from St Helens, who dumped defending champion Michael van Gerwen out of the competition yesterday, outclassed Pipe, eventually prevailing by five sets to two.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, a victorious Chisnall said: "It feels good, but obviously the game wasn't a good game. There were lots of scrappy darts. I think we had too much respect for each other."

Chisnall will play either two-time Grand Prix champion James Wade or world number one Phil Taylor in Sunday's final.

"I'd rather play Phil," he added. "It'll make me play better if I play Phil."

Chisnall has played Taylor on 12 previous occasions, beating 'The Power' just three times. Meanwhile, he has lost six of his nine meetings with Wade.
