Canada's Jocelyn Peterman and Brett Gallant secured a playoff spot at the world mixed doubles curling championship with Wednesday's 6-2 win over England.

Winnipeg's Peterman and Gallant of St. John's, N.L., have two more round-robin games to play Thursday at the Sous-Moulin Sports Centre, but the Canadians were guaranteed one of six playoff berths with the victory over siblings Anna and Ben Fowler.

Canada (6-1) can finish no worse than third in Pool B. It plays its final preliminary-round games Thursday against Australia (3-4) and the United States (4-3).

"If we continue to play the way we're playing and we continue to get comfortable with the ice, we'll be in a good position," Gallant said.

"We're positioning our draws better than we were at the start of the week, and that's been the key to our game. Getting those angles set up, and we're starting to make a few more shots a game, and that's really been helping."
