Wright Hungry For More Titles

PETER WRIGHT believes his BetVictor World Cup of Darts triumph alongside Gary Anderson can be the springboard to a flurry of titles in 2019.

Wright, who prior to Sunday night last tasted glory on a TV stage at the Melbourne Darts Masters in August 2018, picked up his first PDC crown of the year alongside Anderson in Hamburg with a 3-1 victory over Republic of Ireland in the final.

The world number five is now looking to add to his haul of 23 PDC titles, with European Tour events in Copenhagen and Prague in June before July's World Matchplay.

"This could definitely kick-start my year, I want more titles now," said Wright, who sealed the World Cup with victory over Steve Lennon.

"I came close a couple of weeks ago on the European Tour but Ian White beat me, so I'll be out to go all the way next time I get to a final.

"At the World Matchplay Gary will be defending that trophy and he'll be hard to beat.

"I'm going to try and stick with this set of darts and maybe I'll have a chance against him.

"It's about time we won the World Cup, we're both quality players and we should've won it ages ago but that's gone and we've won it now.

"We clicked this year and going forward we want to keep on winning it!"

Wright will return to action at the Danish Darts Open in Copenhagen from June 14-16, with action shown on video.pdc.tv.
