“Now a massive push these next few days for the European just to get things back in order.”

MICHAEL SMITH has vowed to produce a “massive push” for the European Championship.

 

The St.Helens ace opened up on below par displays in the last four Players Championships in Barnsley.

 

Smith, 32, lost all four of his opening matches and admits he needs to sharpen up before taking on Karel Sedlacek in Dortmund on Thursday night.

 

He said: “I’ve gone four out of four first round losses. But this week the way I’ve played, I’ve had two good games and the rest has been a struggle to watch never mind play. I’ll be back though trust me.

 

“It’s been the worst four days of my darting career. Just everything. My doubles have been miss and miss, never mind hit and miss and scoring gone.

 

“Now a massive push these next few days for the European just to get things back in order.”

 

James Wade faces defending Euro champ Rob Cross in his opening round on Thursday. On-form Madars Razma begins his title bid against Dirk van Duijvenbode.

 

Chris Dobey’s Euros start on Friday against Michael van Gerwen.
