Kenny will race against a strong field in Sunday's individual sprint
Manning said: "It's a good performance - we're in the final - we just need to deliver a better performance.
"We're second, which is where we need to be. You've got to be in the top two and then go for the win in a race scenario. The crowd got behind them and they were excited by that. We have to remain focused on our goals for the ride.
"We've got 24 hours now. It's quite a productive time to look at the four riders and see who we want to use."
Japan were the first of 15 women's teams to take to the track, but their time of four minutes 13.408 seconds was soon overtaken and Canada's Tara Whitten, Gillian Carleton and Jasmin Glaesser briefly threatened the United State's world record, held since May 2010, before finishing 1.2 seconds outside.
Australia and the Netherlands will meet in the race for bronze, while world record holders the United States placed fifth.
Meanwhile, Jason Kenny has belatedly received his Track Cycling World Championships gold medal and rainbow jersey.
