Limerick Man Bullish After Biggest Win Of Darts Career

Willie O'Connor had the biggest win of his darts career on Wednesday evening, defeating England's James Wilson in the second round at the PDC World Championships.

O'Connor trailed a set and a leg early in the second but won the next three legs and then the final set 3-1 to claim the win.

Speaking to Live Darts after his victory, O'Connor said the big numbers Wilson was hitting early in the match didn't bother him.

I won't back down and I will not back down. I don't care what you throw at me, I'm going to be standing there looking at you.

You better keep backing it up and keep backing it up the next night as well.

O'Connor will face either Mensur Suljović or Ryan Searle in the last-32.

The 32-year-old said he would prefer to play number seven seed Suljović in the next round. O'Connor has a decent record against the Serbian-born Austrian.

"It never did before so I can't see it being a problem in the future," O'Connor said about the pace at which Suljović plays.

"I'm not happy with how I've done this year or previous years - I know I can play so much better. I know what I can do when I put in the effort."
