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.
