Teesside's Paul Drinkhall is now guaranteed a silver medal in the Table Tennis Mixed Doubles at the Commonwealth Games.
The 24-year-old, from Loftus, and his wife Joanna Drinkhall beat Northallerton's Daniel Reed and Kelly Sibley 3-2 in a tense Semi-Final match in Glasgow.
The Drinkhall's won Game One 11-5, before Reed and Sibley levelled the match and then went 2-1 up in Game Three. But it was once again level at 2-2 in Game Four, before the Drinkhall's went on to clinch the final Game 11-8.
The result means Paul and Joanna Drinkhall face Liam Pitchford and Tin Tin Ho in an all-England Gold Medal Match. While Reed and Sibley will face Singapore in the Bronze match.
Teesside's Paul Drinkhall has earned his second Semi-Final spot in a matter of hours after progressing in the Table Tennis Men's Doubles.
The 24-year-old, from Loftus, and his partner Liam Pitchford overcame Nigeria 3-2 in the Quarter-Finals. It came less an hour after Drinkhall and his wife Joanna qualified for the Semi-Finals of the Mixed Doubles event.
However, Northallerton's Daniel Reed is out of the Men's Doubles after he and Sam Walker were beaten 3-1 by India in the Quarter-Finals.
