Clayton on Durrant's downturn after maiden Premier League win: "It's a lonely place up there"

Jonny Clayton claimed his maiden Premier League Darts win after his brilliant opening night draw by seeing off Glen Durrant.

Clayton comfortably took care of Durrant 7-3 but sympathised with the reigning Premier League champion after the match and admitted the late revival of sorts could have stemmed from 'The Ferret' expecting 'Duzza' to start playing his top game.

"It's gone my way so far and I'm a happy man," said Clayton post match. "We're all out to do a job and I'm a happy guy at the moment."

"Maybe I got lazy not concentrating as much but I was still waiting for Glen to kick in. As a player obviously it's hard for Glen but it's difficult for us to stand behind and think when's he going to kick in and instead of concentrating on my own game, I was thinking of that."

"To win a game, it's good for me but it's hard to play against. I've known Glen for many years, he's struggling at the moment and you know he'll come out of that because he's class. It is quite difficult because you feel sorry for the guy."

"It's a lonely place up there. When things go brilliant, it's the best place to be but when things don't go your way, it's a hard place to be."
