Fallon's winner chicken dinner

Palace queen will stick to Nando's to routine


FABULOUS Fallon Sherrock will stick to her Nando’s routine before trying to nick another cheeky big World Championship win.

The Bucks bull-hitter takes on Chris Dobey this afternoon in what is sure to be another blockbuster occasion at the Ally Pally.

The eyes of the world will be back on the Milton Keynes mum as she bids for a third straight win over a man.

But she’ll stick to her winner winner chicken dinner pre-match prep, saying: “I had another today. I had exactly the same. 

“My schedule has been exactly the same as before I played Ted Evetts in the first round. It’s my pre-match meal. I have the butterfly chicken, mash and coleslaw. I will stick to it. It’s now a winning meal. Just got to eat that before every game.

“I haven’t daren’t to think about anything after playing Chris. I have learned from experience with the BDO and the ladies tournament. O

“nce I planned it out and I went out first, second round. That is why I take each game as it comes, I don’t look too far in front. I have not planned it out. I don’t even know who is in the bottom half of the draw! I have looked at it. I have no idea.”

Sherrock, 25, was 2,000-1 at the start of the tournament but those odds have halved since her two successive wins.

She added: “I don’t bet or anything. I don’t understand the numbers. I think they might change it a bit now because I am causing so many shocks. My percentage might be less. They might change it a bit now.

“I don’t know. It will probably go another half, then another half, half, half. I will go with that.”

The Pink Princess has definitely upped her game considerably and shown great mental strength to battle back from difficult positions in sets.

She added: “It’s because with the men, they don’t give up. You don’t get any leeway. You need to hit your doubles. If I am losing, I didn’t realise I had lost five legs. I don’t realise. 

“I sit and focus on each leg as it comes. I could be 2-0 sets, two legs down, but I wouldn’t think that. I take each leg as it comes. That is the positive and only thing different. I focus on each leg and not what the score is. Try to bring it back.”

Whatever the result against Dobey, Sherlock has got the world at her feet with a World Series appearance in New York in June and perhaps even a sensational call-up into the Premier League in February. 

She added: “Obviously, I wouldn’t say no to that. It would be incredible. Excited to see what opportunities open up.

“If I can carry making money, playing to this standard, I would love it. I need more opportunities. I have proven myself. I love it. All women play better against men. I have beaten two men now.

“I have never been to America at all. This is great. A great experience. I cannot wait. It is so exciting. You can only dream of that. Who thought I would play in it? Or a woman? I had nothing to lose.

“I have no idea how many Twitter followers I have now. I was shocked how it went up in 24 hours. I am really excited to see what happens next.”
