Gurney looking forward to busy schedule in bid to recapture form: "The game is coming back"

2017 was a special year for Daryl Gurney as he captured his first TV title at the World Grand Prix and ahead of the tournament heading to Leicester this week, he is in a different space.

Gurney is now trying to recapture his form which saw him as part of the darting elite following that triumph and he believes constant match practice will help.

"The game is coming back, it's getting there, I'm practicing very hard to get back to where I was," said Gurney to The Darts Show podcast.

"I have lost a lot of aggression from my game but I need to get it back because I think I play better when I've got a bit of intensity in my game.

"But I'm playing well again, I'm hitting more 100+ averages than I ever have.

"I think the games moved on, you've got to move with the times - if you're not hitting 100 averages regularly then you aren't going to do anything.

"A few years ago you'd say there was 30 people in the room who could win a title, now its 50 or 60 if not more.

"We're coming into the busiest time of year now which suits me because I'm one of these players who likes to play every week, which we haven't done for a long time now."
