    Gilmour and Bankier bounce back as Scotland stars reach quarter-finals

     Kirsty Gilmour and Imogen Bankier shook off last night's women's doubles disappointment when they bounced back today by reaching the last 16 in their second events at Glasgow 2014.

    Second seed Gilmour was too strong for Yeldy Louison of Mauritius, winning her last 16 match in the women's singles 21-4 21-6 to keep on course for a quarter-final clash with New Zealand's sixth seed Michelle Chan, who gave her a tough test in the team event in Glasgow's Emirates Arena.

    Third seeds Bankier and Robert Blair started slowly in the mixed doubles before stealing the first game from a six-point deficit before going on to beat Terry Hee and Fu Mingtian of Singapore 21-19 21-11 on their fifth match point.

    That win keeps then on course for a semi-final showdown with top seeds Chris and Gabby Adcock.

    Blair is back in action tonight with Paul Van Rietvelde in the men's doubles with Scotland's second pair, Martin Campbell and Patrick MacHugh also bidding for a quarter-final place.

    Kieran Merrilees is also through to the last eight in the men's singles after beating Northern Ireland's Tony Murphy 21-15 21-8. He now faces his GB training partner Rajiv Ouseph, the 2010 silver medallist and third seed from England.
