Scotland savoured more glory on Saturday at Glasgow 2014 and while day four looks a bit quieter on the medal front, there's still plenty to look forward to.

While attention will focus on the start of the athletics at Hampden, there are Scots in contention for medals at the bowls, with women's fours medal matches taking place.

Aileen McGlynn will look to add to her silver medal in the women's 1000m time trial.

In the pool, Hannah Miley will also be seeking to add to her collection as she races in the 200m individual medley.

Elsewhere, the Rugby 7s competition continues at Ibrox and Scotland's women take on Wales at the hockey centre.

Possible gold medals for Scotland:

Cycling Track (Women's 1000m time trial B2 tandem), Swimming (women's 200m individual medley) and Lawn Bowls (Selected events).
