Man City defender Richards says Balotelli can make derby difference

Manchester City defender Micah Richards reckons Mario Balotelli can be the difference in Monday's derby against Manchester United.

Richards reckons Super Mario - back in contention after a three-game ban - is great at getting goals at just the right time.

He said: "Mario was outstanding that day. Just when you want your striker to score, he took the pressure of us.

"It just shows his quality. In the games coming up we need to take our chances at the right time, too."
