What are Emma Paton’s predictions for the Darts World Championship?

Paton has put her neck on the line with her predictions for this year’s tournament.

Her surprise package pick is Nathan Aspinall. He has recovered from a potentially career-ending injury to get to Ally Pally.

Paton says: “The Asp is back to his best.”

Another she believes to watch out for is the unseeded Josh Rock.

Paton claims: “I reckon every player watching the draw at the end of November was hoping and praying they didn’t draw Rock.”

The first round game that she cannot wait for is Willie O’Connor against Beau Greaves.

She is just 18-years-old and is ready to break history and become the youngest woman to compete in the 30-year history of the PDC World Darts Championship.

Paton has praised the Doncaster thrower and can’t decide who will win Friday’s opening night clash.

Her World Championship winner is Michael van Gerwen.

The Dutchman is in top form with Paton thinking he is unstoppable.
