Taylor advises Wright to stop switching darts

Peter Wright lost out in his World Championship defence to Gabriel Clemens in the third round and Phil Taylor has advised him to stop switching darts.

Wright is known for tinkering even mid game when he brings multiple sets onto the stage and speaking in a recent interview with the PDC, he believes the pressure also got to him during his World title year.

"I would definitely get a dart that suits him," added the Stoke great.

"Swapping and changing isn't doing him any favours, but he performs and he's a brilliant player.

"I think the pressure took its toll this year, I could see it in his eyes when he was playing. He was nervous and he was heartbroken when he walked off the stage, but it's something you have to learn.

"You have to go through this, sometimes knocking you down does you good because you get back up a bit stronger."
