Brendan Dolan claimed a second title of the season at Players Championship 29 defeating Ian White in a closely ran final.

Dolan had a five year run without a title and he now had the belief that he can still do it when it matters and that his confidence changed massively when he won in Hildesheim.

He also set out his goals and firmly believes now that the World Matchplay and World Grand Prix are in his sights.

“I can still do it, I played quality darts today at the right times and I think I deserved any luck I got,” said Dolan, who now has six PDC titles to his name.

“The one in Hildesheim was more of a relief, whereas today I came into it with more belief that I could win having done it recently.

“When you’ve not been winning for five years your confidence is not so high and winning in Hildesheim has drastically changed that.

“In my head today I was determined to add money to my ranking to give me shot of qualifying for the 2020 World Matchplay and World Grand Prix.

“I’ve missed those two events for the last three years and it’s killed me not being there, so hopefully next year I will be.”
