Gurney on potential Premier League great escape in Milton Keynes: "Hopefully the long break and change in schedule can help me"
Daryl Gurney is at the bottom of the Premier League after a poor start to proceedings until it was halted in mid-March.
Gurney has claimed just two draws from six matches and will begin against Chris Dobey in Milton Keynes on Tuesday night but he believes that it could help him having the run of games.
"Things weren't going my way at all at the start of the Premier League , hopefully the long break and change in schedule can help me," said Gurney to Darts World.
“Before lockdown it could have taken me a fortnight to get up the table. But now that could only take 48 hours. That’s my incentive.
“Obviously it’s still just down to me. I still believe I’m in control of my own destiny. But I need to hit the ground running on Tuesday. If I can get my first win, I think I can get up the table.
“It’s going to be very different for all the players. There’s no doubt if you can hit form straight away, it could be a really good thing to have the fixtures all in one hit over two weeks.
"I'll go there as I always do, just to focus on me and nothing else. There's a lot of distractions right now, different venue, no crowds and stuff like that. You've got to block it all out and just play the board like you would in the ProTour."
