Peter Wright is convinced Glen Durrant will down Gerwyn Price in the PDC World Darts Championship quarter-final on Sunday evening.
Snakebite booked his place in the final four with a superb 5-3 win over Luke Humphries on Sunday afternoon and awaits the winner of the Durrant vs Price clash.
The Iceman is the favourite with the bookmakers to come through the contest, but Wright has different ideas to the bookies.
The Scot believes that three-time BDO world champion Durrant will use his vast experience of set-play to his advantage and cause an upset.
‘Glen Durrant all the way, easy,’ Wright told Sky Sports. ‘I reckon he beats Pricey 5-2.’
Snakebite slightly toned down his exuberance in the post-match press conference and changed his prediction to a close match, but with the same winner coming out of it.
‘I think it’ll be close but Glen wins it because of his experience over sets, being a world champion,’ said the former UK Open champion.
‘Yes Gezzy has got the Grand Slam double, but he hasn’t got the sets and over that long distance, leg on leg on leg, being pushed every single time.
‘I think he’s going to find it a little bit difficult.’
The two men have met on a regular basis over the last 13 months, first playing each other at the 2018 Grand Slam of Darts.
Price has the better of the head-to-head record, winning five to Durrant’s three, although Duzza prevailed last time they played, in October.
The Iceman poke highly of Durrant after his win over Simon Whitlock in the last 16 on Saturday and is excited about the challenge of the reigning BDO world champ.
‘I’ve played Glen numerous times, he’s beat me a couple of times, I beat him a couple of times,’ said the world number three.
