Darts player from Presteigne, Jim Williams, had great success last night (Wednesday, December 20) at the World Darts Championship, beating two time world champion Peter Wright.

Williams beat the world number four in straight sets to progress to the third round.

Despite not dropping a set in his first two games, Williams believes he's not playing to his highest standard. Speaking to the media after yesterday's game, he said: "I find that I'm not really playing well, I've had two funny games so far that have been mentally tough for me. Both games my focus has been in and out terribly, but when the pressures on you sometimes it's easier to focus so hopefully there's more in the tank."

With two of the top contenders, Peter Wright and James Wade out of the tournament, Williams was asked if he felt he could now make a deep run into the tournament. He said: "Everyone plays so well now that it's not a surprise to see like rank 128 beat rank 2; the standard at the moment is just fantastic."

When asked about Peter Wright, who put on a poor display, Williams said: "He's a gentleman, honestly, he wished me all the best and he apologised for not playing great, but I've been in his shoes and it's tough.

"It was difficult (during the game) because he wasn't playing well but you know at any moment there he could have flicked the switch and not lost another leg so it was a difficult game.

The Welshman will now play in round three of the World Darts Championship against either Raymond van Barneveld or Radek Szaganski.
