Suffolk Darts star Peter Wright will bid for a place in the Ladbrokes World Championship final tonight when he takes on Simon Whitlock.

The 43-year-old was considered as an outsider before the tournament, but impressive victories over the likes of Michael Smith and Wes Newton have seen him progress to the last four.
