London, Jan 25(ANI): Manchester United defender Gary Neville has added more fuel to the fire ahead of the second Manchester derby on Wednesday, saying City do not deserve their lead.

Neville was at the centre of controversy for his one-fingered gesture that took place in United's 2-1 defeat in the Carling Cup semi first leg.

"We certainly deserved at least a draw for our performance at City. For the first 40 minutes and the last half hour we were the stronger team," The Sun quoted Neville, as saying.

Neville and Manchester City star Carlos Tevez have been given a final warning by the Football Association (FA) for their verbal feud in the build-up to the match, however the United skipper said that City should not have got the spot-kick, which Tevez scored.

"The replays proved the decision was wrong and everyone could see it. That goal just before half-time lifted City a little bit," he said.

He further claimed that his team will fight back at Old Trafford.

"The atmosphere was very good last Tuesday. All Manchester derbies have a great atmosphere and Wednesday will be no different at our ground," Neville said.

"The night atmosphere at Old Trafford is always special. Our fans never let us down in the important matches and they will be well up for it. It'll be a great environment to play football in," he added. (ANI)
