Aspinall admits complacency over last 12 months: "I've become lazy, you can't rely on ability alone"
Nathan Aspinall has become part of the darting elite with his rags to riches story well known in the darting world.
But with that comes success setting in and for Aspinall speaking at the recent Hungarian Darts Trophy, he admitted complacency has set in as of late with his girlfriend being the one to snap him out of it.
"My girlfriend has supported me over the last 10 years through the bad times and my good times and she sees how disappointed I am when I come away. Not so much TV events, I'm doing okay in them, I rarely get beat prior to the Quarters but ProTours I'm having a nightmare and she keeps seeing the disappointment," said Aspinall to Online Darts.
"She was like put your golf clubs down, you're here to work, get practicing and for the last two weeks, I have done four hours a day every single day and it's amazing. I've got my confidence back, I've got my throw back."
"Any lads watching this don't get complacent which is what I've done for the last 12 months. I've become lazy, you can't rely on ability alone."
