Jose de Sousa will head into tonight’s PDC Home Tour group which includes Nathan Aspinall, Jesus Noguera and Jamie Hughes as a potential outsider but his form to begin the tournament may suggest otherwise.

De Sousa produced one of the best performances, if not, the best during the group stage blowing away the field which included Reece Robinson and Robert Thornton – who themselves played well.

‘The Special One’ burst onto the scene in 2019 with two Players Championship wins and he will hope to do the same tonight during the PDC Home Tour. He is optimistic of doing so.

“I think the Home Tour was one of the best performances yet for me in the PDC. I played fantastic. I was surprised a little bit; the previous two weeks I practised so much with friends and small tournaments for fun. If I play always the same; then maybe I can be the Lockdown World Champion,” said De Sousa to Darts World.

“Last year was my first in the PDC and in the middle of the season one of my sponsors make me a new arrow for me and gave me a big push up; my game is much better now. That’s because of the new barrels.”

“This year I think I’m a bit stronger; I always try to produce a solid game because that’s way you have more opportunities to win legs. This is another very tough group for me. But I know if I can play the same again like I did before; I can beat anyone.”
