Wes Newton says he is ready to give everything he’s got against Dave Chisnall on Thursday as the pair look to gain a win that will help them avoid relegation from the Premier League Darts.
The 36-year-old currently sits ninth in the table and with Chisnall one place above him, the match will be a true winner takes all affair as the pair know that a victory will see them progress to the next stage and give them a chance of making it through to the final week of the competition at London’s O2 Arena on May 22.
Newton started his second Premier League campaign in strong style, losing just one of his first four matches but after illness ruled him out of the event in Exeter, his form has suffered badly with him losing three weeks in a row before drawing with bottom place Simon Whitlock seven days ago in Nottingham.
It means he simply must beat Chisnall and is the underdog going into the match, currently priced at 2.14, while ‘Chizzy’ is 1.73 to take the win.
The Warrior is determined to upset the odds, though, and says he is ready to give his all in what he is expecting to an extremely entertaining contest against one of his best friends on tour.
“It’s going to be exciting and it’s great for the competition that it’s all come down to this week,” Newton is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. “Dave’s in the same position as me, and it’s good that we’re playing each other.
“It’s sudden-death really and if I win then I’ll stay in, but if I don’t then I could be going home. It’s all to play for and I know what I’ve got to do. It’s a crunch game for all of us and it’s going to be very interesting for the neutrals and the crowd to watch.”
