Mark Webster has revealed that he will compete at PDC Q-School in January if he loses his Tour Card despite an upturn of form as of late.

The former Lakeside World Champion is unlikely to play at the PDC World Championship barring entry through the Qualifier and so will likely be in Wigan.

‘The Spider’ has said that if he gets through it great, but if not he will reassess and potentially do similar to Paul Nicholson and do more of the media side for a year. He has categorically denied that he will play BDO and gave his reasoning that once you’ve played on the PDC ProTour it’s hard to backtrack.

“I’m playing better but I’ve left it too late. I’m probably going to Q School in January,” said Webster.

“I’ve picked up slightly over the last few months but it’s really tough. You don’t even feel like you’re playing that bad but if you don’t win games you don’t get prize money and it’s hard to keep your ranking. That’s the way it’s gone for me.

“I’ve got to go. It’s the beginning of the year, if you get through great, if you don’t then I’ll just assess things then,” he added.

“If I don’t get my card, I’ve got to be honest I don’t envisage myself playing on the Challenge Tour. A few people asked me would I go back to the BDO? I’m not going to do that either.

“Once you’ve played in the PDC and played on the Pro Tour – we’re quite spoilt, so to backtrack from that I’d find quite difficult so I’d probably look towards the media side if I didn’t get my tour card but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
