England's Lizzie Armistead targeting Commonwealth Games cycling gold

Lizzie Armistead admits that she has "a bit of a score to settle" at the 2014 Commonwealth Games after missing out on a gold medal at both Delhi 2010 and London 2012.

England cyclist Lizzie Armistead has targeted a gold medal in tomorrow's women's road race at the Commonwealth Games.

The 25-year-old, who won silver at both the Delhi 2010 Games and the London Olympics, comes into the event on the back of arguably her finest ever season.

"I have got a bit of a score to settle after missing out on gold in 2010," Sky Sports News quotes Armitstead as saying. "I have got lots of silver medals, from Delhi in 2010 and London in 2012, so it would be nice to pick up some golds and the Commonwealth Games is a great place to start.

"This race is really important to me. With it being a Scottish Commonwealth Games, it feels like a home Games and I see it as a massive opportunity to say that you are Commonwealth Games champion."

Armistead missed Thursday's time trial through injury.
