Darren Webster is on course to potentially make the semi-finals of the World Championship in what has been a good year for the Demolition Man capped off by his first ever Pro Tour win, he faces Toni Alcinas tomorrow for a spot in the Quarter’s and will play the winner of Jamie Lewis and James Richardson for a place in the semi-finals in a really wide open quarter of the draw.
He secured that by defeating Simon Whitlock a player who he has a brilliant record against and that continued with the Norwich man winning 4-1 and afterwards he spoke about his desire and the pressure Simon was under.
“I’m really pleased with myself it was the rematch and obviously he was after me,” said Webster, who plays Toni Alcinas in the last 16.
“I’ve played 12 sets against the man and he’s only won two and yet they keep making him the favourite – I love it!
“I think Simon was under more pressure than me as last two times I’ve played him I’ve won. I enjoyed it up there but there are still a lot of things for me to learn – I’m working on it.
“I think if I can win three more matches then I’ll be the number one English dart player so that’s two down, three to go!
“I’m here to win this, I’m not here to make numbers up. Whereas before I used to say I’m here to give them a game now I’m here to win it all.”
Darren Webster into the Third Round comfortably as he sees off Simon Whitlock.
