Texas Tour 2014 picture gallery: Progress continues for players

Villa's players were hard at work again as they trained under the blazing heat of a Monday morning sun in Dallas.

Paul Lambert put his claret and blue troops through their paces as they again worked on fitness and football ahead of the FC Dallas game on Wednesday.

Check out our exclusive picture gallery here.

Sunday saw them work out in the Toyota Stadium itself but Monday heralded a different venue, with the likes of Joe Cole, Jores Okore, Darren Bent and Philippe Senderos putting in the hard yards at the Toyota Fitness Soccer Center.

Villa were on the Avalon Field as they readied themselves for a tough task against the MLS in midweek.

There was a special guest watching them too, with NFL ace Dan Bailey of the Dallas Cowboys checking out his favourite team in action.

The classy kicker was over-the-moon to see the players in the flesh - and also got to meet Lambert and Okore after the session.

You'll be able to see a separate image special of Bailey very soon.
