Manchester City defender Micah Richards is desperate to score against Manchester United on Wednesday.

Richards is hoping for a start against United and the chance to end his derby misery that started last season when Michael Owen peeled off him to score a last-minute winner at Old Trafford.

“When Owen came on and scored in the last minute that absolutely knocked my confidence,” he said. “I’ve hit the bar, hit the post, and had shots cleared off the line against them.

“I think I’m destined not to score in those games! To score against them now is one of my big targets.”
