Peter Wright has no doubt about edging out Kim Huybrechts in the second round of the World Matchplay. ‘Snakebite’ thinks that the Belgian is not good enough to beat him.
“I expect to win, simple”, Wright told Live Darts. The Scotsman played Huybrechts twice before at the World Matchplay. Both previous meetings were easily won by the world number two.
“I want to win and I will win. Kim hasn’t got the game to beat me so I’ll be in the Quarter-Finals”, the former UK Open champion added.
Despite the firm conviction of Wright that he will beat Huybrechts, his form was not great in the first round. The Scotsman beat Jelle Klaasen 10-5 in the first round, but he only produced an average of 89 with his new darts. That means nothing about his upcoming match with ‘The Hurricane’, Wright says.
“Mentally, I was ready to go out and hit a ton-plus average, but if you don’t need to, you don’t need to.
“What’s the point in showing too much to the other guys?
“I think the other guys don’t want to show too much either, they’re playing poker and they don’t want to show their hand too soon.”
