City to get Justice

The 20-year-old has spent the last week at the First Division outfit and has done enough to win a permanent deal.
Citizens boss Kevin Keegan is keen to bolster his squad for the final promotion push, but they will have to win a work permit for the Nigerian international before completing the deal.
"Kevin was one of my idols growing up and I loved the stadium, the club, the players when I visited. The level is much higher than Antwerp."
Meanwhile, Keegan has been linked with a raid on his former club Fulham for out-of-favour goalkeeper Maik Taylor.
Keegan is in need for a new goalkeeper after Nicky Weaver was ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury picked up in the win at Birmingham in midweek.
Taylor has found himself on the sidelines at Craven Cottage this season since the summer arrival of Dutch international Edwin van der Sar.
The Northern Ireland international is unhappy at his lack of first time football and he is thought to be keen on a move away.
Keegan knows all about the 30-year-old as he signed him five years ago as Fulham manager and he is determined to have cover available for Carlo Nash for the last stretch of the season.
"In some ways Nicky's injury has come at a bad time but had it come in another few weeks' time when the transfer deadline had gone it would have been worse," Keegan told the club's official website. "At least now I have a chance to react to the shock and get someone in."
"We only have young goalkeepers in Brian Murphy and Kevin Ellegaard so I think more likely than not we will get someone in on loan."
