“That’s how you play a semi-final. You’ve got to attack,” the 49-year-old told BBC Sport. “It’s going to be a cracking final. I think me and Simon have played the best in the two halves. He’s a good player, great under pressure, his finishing this week has been fantastic.”
Sportingbet make 40 year old suprise package Webster 6/1 to cause another upset after holding his nerve to beat the five times world champion Barneveld 6-5 after being 4-2 behind.
I didn’t know where that last dart was going and fortunately it went in,” said the “Wizard” “I was so nervous. It’s the hardest double to hit, that last one to win the match.”
Taylor has dropped only one set on his route through to the final and is 11/2 at Stan James to record another whitewash tonight.
