Suffolk darts star Peter Wright has made it through to Wednesday's PDC World Championship final after a stunning 6-2 victory over Simon Whitlock.

The 43-year-old has never previously gone beyond the third round stage of the competition, but he will now take centre stage at the Alexandra Palace on New Year's Day.

Wright was simply too good for world number four Whitlock, averaging 100.24 and showing no sign of nerves.

However, Wright will have to be at his very best to beat the formidable Michael van Gerwen who cruised into the final with a fantastic 6-0 triumph against Adrian Lewis.
