World champion Peter Wright is through to the semi-finals of the European Darts Championship after seeing off Steve West in Germany.

Scotland's Wright booked his place in the last four with a convincing 10-6 victory at König-Pilsener-Arena in Oberhausen.

"Snakebite" averaged 104 and hit eight 180's in an impressive performance, which proved too strong for his English opponent.

Victory for Wright saw him set up a semi-final meeting with Jonny Clayton of Wales, who beat Dirk Van Duijvenbode of the Netherlands 10-4.

Tomorrow's other semi-final will be between England's James Wade and South Africa's Devon Peterson.

Wade, the 2018 European champion and three-time World Championship semi-finalist, swept aside Ireland's William O’Connor 10-4.

Peterson was also in superb form, recording 10 180's and averaging more than 106 in a 10-6 win over England's Ian White.

The winner is due to be crowned tomorrow and is set to pocket a prize of £120,000 ($155,000/€133,000).
