Silver Ferns beat England

6:36 pm on 8 October 2010

The New Zealand netball coach Ruth Aitken admits she had her concerns during her side's come-from-behind victory over England at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

The 47-41 victory means they'll avoid arch rivals Australia in the semi-finals.

Aitken says she had her heart in her mouth going into the final quarter trailing England by one but was pleased with how her players responded to the pressure, outscoring the English 13 to six in the last stage of the game.
