the Men's Singles bronze medal

Day 10 of the Badminton competition will feature five bronze medal play-off matches in the Men's Singles, Women's Singles, Men's Doubles, Women's Doubles and Mixed Doubles, starting from 6.30pm.

Unlike Manchester 2002, where both the semi final losers automatically received the bronze, a play off for the bronze is required at the Melbourne 2006 Games.

The gold medal playoff will be on Day 11 (26 March) - the last day of the Games.

In the Men's Singles, Aamir Ghaffar (England) will take on Chetan Anand of India. Anand, who played well in his semi final match against Choong Hann Wong, looks the stronger player.

In the Women's Singles, Elizabeth Cann (Jersey) is up against Scotland’s Susan Hughes. Un-seeded Cann eliminated several seeded players in the Preliminary Rounds and appears to be the clear favourite to win the bronze.

In the Men's Doubles, explosive English duo Robert Blair and Anthony Clark will compete against Australia’s Travis Denney and Ashley Brehaut.

The home crowd advantage will boost the chances of securing the bronze for the Australian pair when they face the highly ranked second seeds from England.

The Women's Doubles will see India's Murgunde and Saina Nehwal up against England's Gail Emms and Donna Kellogg.

The Indian players will need to improve dramatically on their Semi Final performance if they are going to trouble the second-seeded English pair.

In the Mixed Doubles, the bronze medal match promises to be a clash of contrasting styles, with the stylish Malaysian duo Kien Keat Koo and Pei Tty Wong taking on the neighbouring dynamic Singaporean pair of Hendri Saputra and Yujia Li.

A close match is expected.
