GLASGOW (AFP) - Top seeds Singapore's women secured their progress from the preliminary round of the team table tennis at the Commonwealth Games before the men's team pulled off another convincing victory.

The women followed up their 3-0 win over Sri Lanka on the first morning of competition with a routine 3-0 victory against Northern Ireland. The men maintained the form they showed in beating Ghana 3-0 in their first match with another comprehensive 3-0 victory over Sri Lanka.

Their final match of Pool A comes against Seychelles on Friday.

Even without number one player Feng Tianwei, the Singapore women made short work of Northern Ireland to underline their prospects of gold at the Scotstoun Sports Complex.
