Wright vows to win World Matchplay and World Championship: 'Put a pound on it'!

Peter Wright was somewhat disappointing claiming seventh place in this year's Premier League Darts but despite that, he sees the positives going into the next part of the darting season.

"Jonny [Clayton] who won it - he drew with me and then I beat him. I drew with Jose [De Sousa] and Michael [van Gerwen] got away with that, because I mucked about on doubles, but I know I've got him in the pocket so that's not a problem," he said to Sky Sports.

Wright is now playing better as evidenced with his PDC Super Series triumph and he made a bold prediction on two tournaments in particular.

"I was playing rubbish back then and I've gone up so many gears from then. Two years ago when I went to the Matchplay, I had 21 averages over 100 on the trot, so I will be looking to do the same sort of thing approaching the Matchplay.

"I am going to win the Worlds and the Matchplay this year, so get the double on. Put a pound on it, or 50p!"
