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.
