PETER WRIGHT admitted he was gutted he missed out on breaking his Unibet Premier League average record in a big win over Nathan Aspinall.
The World Champion was back to his scintillating best with a crushing 7-3 win over in-form Aspinall in Exeter last night.
Snakebite delivered a venomous 110 average to blitz The Asp and roar back into contention for the league title.
He admitted: “I was really nervous. I’ve gone from a 20g dart to a 23 because of the weekend. But I think Gerwyn Price and Nathan Aspinall are the best players in the world right now. We had a cracking game the other week and he’s fantastic.
“He had a couple of dodgy scores and let me in and I did OK.
“We are on the road so much, we forget about the previous match. If you think about it too much you go downhill. You just get up, kick yourself and you get back on the practice board and tomorrow’s a different day.
“That’s all it is, you don’t worry what you’ve done before. It’s all about what you can do in the future.
“I wanted to beat my record of 119 against Adrian Lewis, that’s how confident I felt.
“I expect myself to be at the O2 for finals night but this Premier League is just full of fantastic players, it’s hard work.”
