Adrian Lewis has been inconsistent for the last 18 months in spells but has shown himself at times to still be up there as one of the World’s best.

Lewis though speaking to LiveDarts at the Target Sports Stars Fishing Championship; admitted that he is back using the right equipment again and that he hopes to show results.

“I think I’ve been very patchy,” Lewis told Live Darts.

“Now I’ve got the right equipment. I’m using small flights again which I used for the first ten years of my career; so why I changed in the first place I don’t know!

“I’m hitting a lot more 180s and that’s showed over the last couple of weeks since I’ve been using them.

“The 180s are back and as long as they’re back, I’m dangerous.”

He added about the Premier League and how he is aiming to put himself back into contention: “I’ve missed it for the last couple of years, I was the last person to hit a nine-darter in it; the last two actually!

“I haven’t been in it for a couple of years and not one has been hit!

“I don’t think I’ve deserved a spot so it’s one of those things and when I start winning again I’ll be back in.

“I couldn’t practice any better, my finishing is good and I’m hitting nine-darters here and there.

“All it is now is getting a bit of confidence and that comes from winning games and tournaments.

“I’m enjoying playing all the tournaments again, I haven’t really done that for a few years so I’m enjoying it which is probably most important.

“I’m 15th at the minute, hopefully coming up to the World Championship I can be pushing around the 12 mark then after the World Championship I’m not defending anything.

“I might win the World Championship for instance, who knows? That’s my aim.”
