Winger says team will be putting everything into West Brom clash

ANTHONY Pilkington insists he and his Norwich City team-mates will be giving every ounce to ensure they get the win to guarantee Premier League survival in Sunday's battle against West Bromwich Albion.

With the season’s end so close on the horizon and the Canaries yet to secure their spot in the division for next season, three crucial points will be at stake when Steve Clarke’s high-flyers visit Carrow Road tomorrow afternoon.

Winger Pilkington, who returned for his first start against Aston Villa last week after a spell out with a hamstring injury, likens the magnitude of the game to City’s memorable wins against top-four opposition earlier in the season.

“The games against the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal have been massive games down here, and it will be no different on Sunday,” he said when addressing the press at Carrow Road on Friday.

“It’s a huge game and I’m sure the boys will be up for it. It’s exciting and we’ll go out there and give our all.

Pilkington says the team have sensed a positive vibe all around the Club and he hopes they can take that into the encounter against the Baggies.

“We’re all being positive and looking forward to the game,” he added.

“Everyone’s been positive in the dressing room and all around the Club. You talk to the fans around the ground and everyone’s right behind each other.

“I’m sure we can all pull together and get the result we’re looking for.”

The 24-year-old’s season has been blighted with injuries, but he now hopes to be over the worst and is looking forward to finishing the campaign on a positive note.

“In the back end of the season I’ve had a few little niggles here and there,” he said.

“I’ve not been able to play as much as I would have liked to, but that’s all behind me now. I’ve got some more training sessions under my belt and hopefully it can carry on Sunday.”
