Glasgow: Australia are unlikely to reach the badminton mixed teams quarter-finals after a tight loss to Canada on Friday.

The tight 2-3 result probably means Australia will not progress from the round-robin group matches into the quarter-finals.

With the tie locked at two all late on Friday night, Australia's top double combination of He Tian Tang and Renuga Venuga lost to Michelle Li and Rachel Honderich 26-24 21-12.

At yesterday's opening game, Australia have fallen one result short of a clean sweep of Wales by winning the mixed teams tie 4-1.

Canada will now play Wales in the final group D tie on Saturday before the quarter-finalists are decided.

The six group winners and the next two best teams go through to the quarters.
