The New Zealand badminton team has been beaten 5-0 by Singapore in their last group match at the Commonwealth Games.

The result means they will play top seeds Malaysia in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Manager Roger Southby says it was a disappointing performance by his side today, but good experience for the players who are all at their first Games.

Southby says they are realistic about their chances on Friday, but have set targets for the players to achieve, and it will hopefully help them in the individual competition later in the Games.
