Adrian Lewis: Aiming for three in a row

Sky Bet

With the World Darts Championship starting this Friday at Alexandra Palace, defending champion Adrian Lewis is bidding to win his third consecutive title.

Lewis told Sky Sports: "It will be a massive achievement. No other player's ever done that. That's my goal now, to get up there and win it.

"You've obviously got the likes of Phil Taylor playing brilliant, your Simon Whitlocks, your Michael van Gerwens... but I know from playing really well I should win it."

Lewis was supporting a celebrity pro-am darts event in Milton Keynes in aid of Prostate Cancer UK, with MK Dons players also in attendance, with some having been in training with a dart board in the dressing room.

Dons player Alan Smith said: "I don't know what's going through their mind but they're doing such a good job so it's all in good spirit!"

Smith's Milton Keynes team-mate Dean Bowditch added: "To be fair I've never gone to watch (the World Darts Championship) but I would love to and get right into the spirit of it."

Between now and Friday though, for Lewis there is only one thing left to do: "Practice, practice, practice."
