Great Britain's women's curling team made it three round-robin wins in a row at the Sochi Winter Olympics with a 10-8 victory over South Korea.

Losing 2-0 after the first end in the morning session at the Ice Cube Curling Center, skip Eve Muirhead's side immediately bounced back with a three then stretched 5-2 ahead.

However, South Korea could not be shrugged off easily, stealing two points in the ninth to lead by one going into the final end.

Muirhead saved the day, though, with three shots on hammer to leave GB with four wins and two defeats ahead of their meeting with Switzerland on Saturday night.

Vicki Adams insists the GB side were playing well enough not to be overly concerned going into the last end a point behind, after the South Koreans had stolen two shots.

"It obviously goes with how well you are playing and what shots you call, but I think we had it pretty well under control there," she told Press Association Sport.

"We played well and the Korean girls played really well too. They keep plugging away and they don't give in.

"In the ninth we had a little bit of a slip-up, we got a chance for a two and went for it but we lost the steal of two.

"But we knew we had the last stone coming home and we knew that if we kept playing well then we would be okay.

"We got it set up pretty well and we knew if we kept plugging away we would get there in the end."
