Peter Wright started his campaign in Hasselt yesterday in his hunt for another major title after having successes in the UK Open and most recently the German Darts Masters. He had the test of Krzysztof Ratajski, the Polish Eagle in Round 1 but dispatched him quite easily and admitted he was a bit nervous and then he spoke about his opponent tonight, Jonny Clayton and hyped him up before the game.

“I was a little bit nervous but I got over the line,” said Wright, who averaged 98.06. “I knew I had a tough game because Krzysztof has been fantastic and done really well this year.

“It started off really well and I did alright in patches, but I let him back into the match and I shouldn’t have.”

Wright now faces a second round tie with Jonny Clayton on tonight, and he added: “Jonny’s been playing some fantastic darts for the past month or so and he’s going to be a dangerous customer, so it should be a really good game.”
