Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis will attempt to fill a gap in her medal cabinet when she competes at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Her coach Toni Minichiello has confirmed that Ennis will take a shot at the one major title that has eluded her in her career to date.

"Jessica will be at Glasgow 2014, definitely," Minichiello said. "That is absolutely the competition plan for us looking ahead. She has not won the Commonwealth title before.

"She was the bronze medallist in Melbourne in 2006 when still quite young and didn't travel to Delhi two years ago. It will not be easy in Glasgow, either.

"There are Canadians and Australians who can step up to the mark there so it will be good competition. It is tight in terms of the schedule with Glasgow 2014 coming about a fortnight before the European Championship, but we certainly intend to come to Scotland."
