City host Aston Villa on Saturday morning, looking to return to winning ways and improve our league position following a disappointing run of results.
Taylor's side can leapfrog the Villans with a victory and the squad have been doing all they can to maintain an upbeat environment - evident in Friday's training session at the City Football Academy.
There were plenty of smiles on show, as preparations stepped up for this weekend's clash.
Kick-off is at 11:30am UK time. Tickets for all City home games are on sale and are able to be purchased online or at the Academy Stadium on the day of the game.
