Bedlington darts ace Chris Dobey confident second PDC final will be the catalyst for a breakout year


Bot

Bedlington darts ace Chris Dobey admits he is full of confidence at the moment after reaching his second ever PDC Pro Tour final at the weekend.

The 27-year-old battled through a field of 128 players to reach the Players Championship 5 final, only to run into world No 1 Michael van Gerwen.

The two-time world champion was in imperious form, running out a 6-2 victor in Milton Keynes - despite Dobey posting a staggering 109.6 average.

‘Mighty Mike’ raced into a 4-0 lead, firing in a 12-darter and capitalising on six missed darts from Dobey to break twice.

Dobey hit bag with a stunning 10-dart leg before breaking throw to reduce the arrears to 4-2.

But Van Gerwen produced a moment of brilliance in the seventh leg, landing a 160 checkout with Dobey sitting on tops to move to within a leg of victory before closing out the win in leg eight.
