Training: Sights set on the Seagulls

Take a look at the best images from Thursday’s training session at the CFA.

City were on the grass today as preparations for our Barclays Women’s Super League clash with Brighton continued.

We enter the match with the south coast side aiming to extend our winning streak to eight games in all competitions.

The latest of those successes came in last weekend’s Conti Cup victory over Sunderland, as we swept past the Black Cats 3-0.


Attention has swiftly turned back to league action, though, and we’ll be searching for a similar result to our last against the Seagulls.

In April 2022, we recorded an impressive 7-2 victory over the visitors, which aided our quest to reach the top three and the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw scored four in the emphatic success, and she’ll be hoping for more of the same this weekend as her rich vein of form in front goal continues this term.

The Jamaica international is currently the joint WSL top scorer with eight goals in seven games.

Despite Brighton coming into the clash without a permanent manager, Gareth Taylor is expecting a tough challenge at the Academy Stadium.

And the Boss’ prediction was reflected in the session as he put us through our paces.
