As the FA Women's Super League season nears its conclusion, Manchester City Women have started preparations for Sunday's visit of Bristol Academy.
A win would put the Blues top of the table - at least for a few hours - as they play before league leaders Chelsea Ladies, and although many of the team have been away on international duty, there was no rest for Nick Cushing's side.
On a sunny morning in Manchester, the remainder of the squad enjoyed a light-hearted training session and our roving Club photographer Victoria Haydn was on hand to snap it.
Krystle Johnston prepares to show off some skills.
No holds barred! Georgia Stanway flies in with a tackle on Nikita Parris.
Keira Walsh is delighted to be back in action after a lengthy lay-off.
Krystle certainly enjoyed the session.
Paula Radtke escapes the attentions of Georgia.
And she's delighted to have done so!
So Georgia attempts to dispossess Emma Lipman instead.
Another smile from the joker Krystle.
City host Bristol Academy in their penultimate game of the season on Sunday 27 September (2pm). With a win, the Blues will go top of the table and they need your support behind them.
