Terry Jenkins will show true quality against Wes Newton
Terry Jenkins believes he has what it takes to make it to the semi-finals of the Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship.
The world No.7 produced a brilliant display in the last 16 to come out on top 4-0 against Mark Walsh and is 8/1 to win with another whitewash against Wes Newton
It hadn’t been an easy ride for Jenkins up to that point, with a narrow 3-2 victory over Joe Cullen in the first round and a far from convincing 4-1 win against Steve Brown in the last 32.
However, Jenkins – whose best performance at the world championships so far has been a quarter-final berth in 2007 – believes he is getting better and better.
He said: “I felt comfortable up there against Mark, more comfortable than the other two nights.
“Against the youngsters you are never sure what they are going to do, but I knew I had to hit everything to beat Mark.
“Sometimes I do go up there a bit too relaxed. I have to learn to get the bit between my teeth whatever happens. I have to go up there fighting for it all the time and I am a better player when the pressure is on.”
However, Newton will not be an easy game for Jenkins. The world No.15 has not dropped a set so far in the tournament and will fancy his chances against a player he has beaten six times during their previous 14 meetings.
Jenkins should have enough though, so back ‘The Bull’ to come out on top 4-2 at a very tidy 2/5.
