Training: Shaping up for the Seagulls

It's cold but sunny in Manchester ahead of another huge Barclays Women's Super League weekend for Gareth Taylor's side.

With a trip to Brighton on Sunday looming large, City were at the CFA on Friday morning to get in shape.

We currently sit third in the table but can pile pressure on both Chelsea and Manchester United with victory at the Broadfield Stadium.

Having not lost in the league since September, Taylor's team are full of confidence and will be hoping to match December's 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture.

Ahead of the journey south, our squad got through some work under clear blue skies in Manchester.
