Out-of-sorts Gerwyn Price 'confident' of turning around Premier League campaign

Former world number one believes he is close to returning to his best form.

Gerwyn Price expects to haul himself back into Premier League contention despite a campaign marred by inconsistency so far.

The former world number one lit up the whole event in Belfast as he hit two nine-dart finishes en-route to winning the night.

He has fallen off the pace in recent weeks, with him currently four points adrift of a play-off spot.

However, with five points available for the winner of each night, Price knows things can change in his favour very quickly if he can hit anything like his best form.

"We're only half-way through the season and nobody has been stand-out," Price said.

"It's the second half of the season now so it's time for me to kick on and reach the Play-Offs, which I'm confident of doing.

"It will only take a couple of night wins to move into the top four. My form is coming back and I'm feeling confident in how I'm playing.

"My wrist injury only has two more weeks to go, which I'm looking forward to being fully healed so I can get back to playing every week."

Price will also be debuting a new walk-on song in Manchester, where week ten of the Premier League takes place this week.

He has chosen 'Roar' by Katy Perry, and he's hoping it can inspire a change of fortune.

"I was just driving home with the family after we'd been out for a meal in Cardiff and 'Roar' came on," Price explained.

"We were all singing along to it and I liked the beat of the music, so I thought 'why not make the change?'

"I listened to the lyrics and I think they suit me and my game, hopefully it can give me a good fresh start in the Premier League."
