Peter Wright makes stunning admission that Premier League has ruined careers

Peter Wright claims the Premier League has "ruined careers" for darts players and has vowed not to suffer the same fate after his nightmare run continued.

'Snakebite' has won just one match in nine torrid weeks in a darting roadshow that has brutally exposed the flaws in his game.

The two-time world champion was dumped out 6-3 by rival Gerwyn Price at the first hurdle in Berlin on Thursday night and is stuck rock bottom of the league table.

And Wright – renowned for tinkering with his darts – admits that this year's decision to ditch the ProTour events has hindered him in an increasingly worrying drop in form.

"Having the time off has backfired," he told Online Darts. "I thought if I have time off, it'll keep me fresh for the Premier League and the Europeans, but obviously it's not working.

He added: "It's the Premier League, it's not quite working but next week it'll turn and I'll start winning and I'll qualify and everyone will go 'where did he come from?' I'm losing every week, but it's one of those things."

The regular taste of defeat could understandably prove disheartening for a player ranked no.2 in the world who is so used to delivering on the big stage.

But Wright is determined not to let a series of defeats wreck his confidence and is remaining hopeful of an upcoming resurgence on the oche.

"Somebody's got to lose, but it's the way you deal with it," he added. 'If you deal with it fine and don't let it affect you.

"It's ruined many, many dart players careers the Premier League and it's not going to ruin mine because I know how to win. I know how to win big majors and I will turn it around."
