GERWYN Price is out of the PDC World Championships following a 6-3 semi-final defeat by Scotland's Peter Wright.

Former runner-up Wright was always in control of the fractious Alexandra Palace encounter, as Markham's Price missed out on a first final.

"I just focused," Wright told Sky Sports. "I've got to play better than that to win this, and I think I will."

He added: "We were winding each other up before the match.

"[Price] said he was going to win the first two sets. I like him, but I didn't appreciate what he did.

"That's why I didn't celebrate. He wanted me to concentrate, I concentrated, he lost.

"His average wasn't that good. He was nowhere near me. It spurred me on."
