Jonny Clayton will make his Premier League debut on home soil to continue his rise tonight in Cardiff as the third Challenger in this year’s line-up.

Clayton is confident ahead of his debut and has extra ambition to do well after finding out he was going to be involved in Cardiff.

The only sticking point ‘The Ferret’ believes could hamper him could be consistency and he will take on Michael Smith later hoping that isn’t an issue.

“It will be a real honour to be part of the biggest night of the year for Welsh darts,” said Clayton.

“Ever since I found out I was playing in the Premier League in Cardiff it’s given me an extra focus in practice.

“I know I’ve got the game, I’ve shown it a few times on TV, so I know that if I turn up with my best game I can become the first Challenger to win.

“My problem is consistency, but I feel like I’m still improving and heading in the right direction.

“I just can’t wait to get out there now and hopefully play my part in what will be a memorable night for Wales.”
