Peter Wright will head into this weekend at the Champions League of Darts with good form having smashed in a record average and speaking before the event debuts in Leicester, he said it is one he is looking forward to.

Wright said that you wouldn’t want to be in either group with all eight players on form at the moment so there will be no easy games.

He also answered whether or not he will be using his Diamond darts which have brought him so much success including that massive average or whether he will change and ‘Snakebite’ confirmed he will be using them but that he does still have multiple sets on standby.

‘I’m looking forward to it, it should be a good experience and be good for the crowd,” said Wright to DartsNews.com.

‘Everyone’s on form at the moment as before at the start of the year you’d say you wouldn’t want to be in a group with MVG, Gary, James Wade because he has won two majors and Michael Smith who got to the finals of the World Championship so you don’t want to be in that group.’

‘I will use the Diamond darts but I did bring another ten sets. Hopefully I will use the Diamond ones.’

All the afternoon’s play will be live on BBC One – click here for the full weekend TV schedule.
