Gerwyn Price has vowed not to change his oche passion as he heads into a crunch last night of Unibet Premier League action.
The Premier League’s regular season concludes with a final night of fixtures at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, where Price is one of four players vying for the final two Play-Off places.
Welshman Price must win or draw to keep his Play-Off hopes alive and then hope results go his way later in the night, and the Grand Slam of Darts Champion is hoping he won’t be left ruing missed chances amongst six draws this season.
Tempers flared between Price and fellow-Play-Off chaser Daryl Gurney on stage after their draw in Sheffield last Thursday, but Price insists the incident is behind them both as he looks to book a debut appearance at The O2.
Price said: “I met up with Daryl, he apologised to me for overreacting and I said ‘fair play’ to him for that.
“We’ve made it up now and put it behind us. Now I’m just focused on this
“Last week’s game meant a lot to me, I knew I needed a win or at least a draw and I should’ve won. But it didn’t go my way and I’ve got to move on now.
“At the start of the league I would’ve taken being in this position but going back five or six weeks I would’ve been disappointed for the situation to be out of my hands.
“If I don’t go through it’s still been a brilliant year for me in the Premier League, even though I drew too many games.
“I’m going to keep being me and playing my own game.”
