Cape Town - Our Commonwealth Games badminton team know the road ahead in the mixed teams category after the draw was announced, writes Mark Etheridge.
Coach Stewart Carson’s squad has been drawn in Pool E where they will take on Norfolk Island, Singapore and Jamaica.
The matches will be played on consecutive days, starting on Thursday, the day after the opening ceremony at Celtic Park.
The hurdle that springs to mind immediately is Singapore, the other two should be beatable if this team plays to their potential.
‘The draw is good but Singapore are seeded fourth overall. This means we need to beat the other teams 5-0 to ensure a chance of making the knock-out,’ says Carson.
‘The other groups including New Zealand, Scotland, Canada and Australia will be vying for the two spots available for the quarter-finals.
‘We’re looking forward to it. We have shown that we can compete with some of the best so we need to prove it here at the Games.’
At this stage the team’s only injury worry is rising young star Jennifer Fry, who turned her ankle over in the warm-up game against Ireland a few days ago.
But, as she told Road to Rio 2016: ‘The doctors say I’m a miraculous healer, so we’ll just keep it strapped nice and tightly and manage it carefully.’
Added coach Carson: ‘Jen is doing well, she will be on court today moving a bit so let’s hope she is good to go. Then on court again tomorrow morning for some tests to see if she can handle a match.
‘The top in each group go through and then the top two overall also go
through to the quarters.’
CWG 2014: India's badminton stars look to better 2010 run

Glasgow: Despite star shuttler Saina Nehwal's last-minute pull-out, India will look to maintain their impressive run when they begin their campaign with a clash against minnows Ghana in the mixed team event of the 20th Commonwealth Games here on Thursday.
India had won two gold, one silver and one bronze in 2010; and this time again they would look to repeat their performance even though they suffered a jolt with the late withdrawal of Saina due to injury.
Parupalli Kashyap and PV Sindhu are expected to be among the medals in men's and women's singles respectively while the women's doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa would be raring to go to defend the gold they won in 2010.

The Indian team has been considerably weakened due to the absence of Saina but it will still be in the reckoning for a medal in the combined mixed team event.
The badminton competitions at the Glasgow Games begin with mixed team event at the Emirates Arena, and India have been placed in Pool B along with Ghana, Kenya and Uganda; and it should not be a problem to top the group and make it to the knockout round.
The group winners of the six pools and the two best runners-up teams will make it to the quarter-finals.
India have a strong chance to win at least a medal in the men's singles after the pulling out of world number one Lee Chong Wei.
Another Malaysian Wei Feng Chong is now the highest ranked left in the fray at 19th while India's Kashyap, bronze winner in 2010 Delhi CWG, is ranked two rungs below. England's Rajiv Ouseph, who won silver in 2010 Delhi CWG, is at 27th while two other Indians, K Srikanth and RMV Gurusaidutt, are at 31st and 35th.
Kashyap has been handed second seed while Ouseph is third. Srikanth and Gurusaidutt are fourth and fifth seeds.
Kashyap had lost to Wei Feng Chong in the recent Thomas Cup in India while Gurusaidutt too went down against the Malaysian in the Malaysia Grand Prix Gold.
In women's singles, only three players in the fray are in the top 50 of the world ranking with India's Sindhu (11th) leading the pack, followed by Kirsty Gilmour of Scotland at 17th and Li Michelle of Canada at 20th.
The 19-year-old Sindhu has been handed the top seed after the withdrawal of Saina, and she would be aiming for gold and add another achievement in her fledging career.
Among other challengers, Kirsty Gilmour, seeded second, will attempt to become the first Scot to win the women's singles title, while Michelle Li of Canada will also fancy her chances. India have another shuttler in the fray in women's singles in PC Thulasi who has been seeded sixth.
In men's doubles, it is a difficult proposition for India to win a medal, though it is not impossible. Malaysia are hot favourites and the England, Singapore and Australian teams may be in for other medals.
In women's doubles also, Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponappa are ranked 21st in the world. They will have to fight out for top honours against Malaysian and Singaporean opponents in their quest to defend the title they won in 2010.
Singapore pair of Shinta Mulia sari and Lei Yao, ranked 15th, have been named in their country's squad while Malaysian 18th ranked pair of Vivian Kah Mun Hoo and Khe Wei Woon will also be competing.
In mixed doubles, India have been seeded third behind defending champions Malaysia and and last edition silver medallists England.
It's a good tie Malaysia vs England....England 1-0 up as expected in the XD. Some decent badminton in the MS with ouseph vs CWF
....and ouseph wins the 2nd game with his patient play.
What a match...cwf wins the third 21-19 in 70m
