ODIHAM hockey star Alex Danson was unable to prevent England suffering their first defeat of the Commonwealth Games.

Having beaten Wales and Malaysia in their opening two games, with Danson finding the net in both matches, England lost 3-0 to Australia in Glasgow this afternoon.

The Australians led by two goals at the break and added a third in the second half to complete the scoring.

Danson and England are next in action on Wednesday, when they take on hosts Scotland in their final group game with a place in the semi-finals up for grabs.
