Wright continues bid for second Masters title, comfortably moves past Clayton to reach semi-finals

Peter Wright sealed the Nordic Darts Masters last weekend and could add the 2023 Masters back to his collection by the end of this evening after seeing off Jonny Clayton in a comfortable win in Milton Keynes.

Wright will face the winner of the last semi-final between Michael van Gerwen and Rob Cross later this evening after averaging 102 and hitting 50% on the outer ring in a 10-6 success over 'The Ferret' who has shown signs of a return to form this weekend but couldn't topple 'Snakebite'.

It was a high standard to begin the tie with Wright moving 3-2 up with a 112 average to Clayton's 108.2 but 'Snakebite' looked to move away with a 124 checkout to go 4-2 up.

Back-to-back legs for 'The Ferret' saw him hit 60 to square it up at 4-4 suddenly and there was nothing to choose between the pair at 5-5.

But on return, it was Wright who surged towards the finishing line. He hit four legs on the spin to go 9-5 up including a 121 checkout on the bull.

Clayton broke back as Wright was throwing for the match but a 12-dart 81 checkout saw Wright seal it.
