Norwich City midfielder Anthony Pilkington says the squad is staying positive ahead of their crucial game against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League.Norwich have won just two of their last nineteen games, a run which leaves them only three points from the drop zone.

'Everyone's been positive around the dressing room, all around the club, and everyone's behind each other,' said Pilkington, speaking ahead of Sunday's clash.

'Everyone was disappointed and gutted after the defeat to Aston Villa. But the boys have picked each other up and the staff have picked us up as well.'

Pilkington said there were no issues with the players after the club's scheduled End of Season dinner was cancelled after the Villa defeat.

'We don't want any distractions leading to Sunday. It was a decision which came from the top,' Pilkington added. 'We're all professionals and we want to get the result we need'.
