SCOTT Mitchell is looking to go one round further when he returns to PDC Pro Tour action this weekend.

The Dorset ace is again filling a vacated spot among the main tour competition, due to his position atop the second tier's Challenge Tour.

This will be the third weekend Mitchell has competed in a Players Championship event this year. He lost his debut 6-2 to world number one Michael van Gerwen before bagging his first victory when facing James Wilson last Saturday.

He also won one match on Sunday, defeating John Michael of Greece, but the second round was as far as he reached on both occasions with 6-5 defeats to Krzysztof Ratajski and Darius Labanauskas.

Asked for his target this weekend when he heads back to Wigan for competitions on Saturday and Sunday, Mitchell told the Daily Echo: "It does depend on the draw a little bit.

"Now I’ve won one game, I want to win two games in one tournament now. I’ve always set myself realistic goals, baby steps.

"I came very close, losing 6-5 twice. I just want to go that one leg closer.

"When it’s meant to happen it will happen and when I get it right, it will be fine. I feel mentally good enough to do it so it will come, I’m sure."

He added: "I could draw Peter Wright and MvG and Gary Anderson first game, both days and have a hell of a problem again.

"You’ve got to take those chances when they come, take the days when they come and keep doing it for what it is."
