Can Clayton Break Matchplay Curse?
The Ferret is still yet to win a game at the Betfred World Matchplay, whether that be in Blackpool or last year in Milton Keynes.
Jonny Clayton is without a doubt the world’s form player going into the Matchplay. He has already lifted two TV titles this year, in the Masters & the Premier League.
This year Jonny vows to put this right and get his first Matchplay win and show the Blackpool fans exactly what he is capable of.
Despite this poor record at the Matchplay, Jonny does not feel put off by the history books, telling us, “I’m not really bothered about my record at the Matchplay. I know that this year I’m playing the best darts of my life and I can beat anyone.
“Just because I’ve never won before that doesn’t mean I can’t do well this year. I’m confident that I will get that first win & even push to win the whole thing. I know I’m capable of it.”
There’s no doubting Jonny’s ability on the oche after the monumental rise & success he has had in the last year. But due the Ferret’s position in the PDC rankings, he would be set for a blockbuster Second Round match.
If Jonny does get his first win, he could face World Cup winning partner and World Champion Gerwyn Price in Round 2, a potential mouth-watering clash for darts fans everywhere.
