Norwich midfielder Pilkington keen to add goals to his game

His first season in the Premier League saw him chip in with eight goals, but the former Huddersfield man is yet to score this term, a stat he is eager to change against Reading
Norwich midfielder Anthony Pilkington has told of his desire to score more goals now he is getting a run in the team, after failing to get on the scoresheet so far this season.

The Canaries winger has forced his way into Chris Hughton's plans following a difficult start to the season, and feels all that is missing is his ability to turn into a match-winner.

"I'm happy to be out there now and getting a good run of games," Pilkington told the club's official website.

"I'm a nightmare when I'm not playing, the Mrs will tell you that!

"But I'm happy to be out there now and getting a good run of games. Hopefully I can start chipping in with a few goals too."

Following a poor start to the campaign, Norwich have turned things around in recent weeks, beating Arsenal before knocking Tottenham out of the Capital One Cup.

"You look at the last four performances and they’ve been really good," the 24-year-old continued. "We'll try to take that confidence into the weekend and come away with all three points.

"Reading are struggling for a win and three points, but hopefully it won't come against us on Saturday.

"It's a tough, tough league and they’re finding that out quickly. Hopefully we can go and do what we’ve been doing in the last couple of performances and take that confidence into the weekend.

"They can score goals and even put five past Arsenal. Not many teams can say they've done that. It's going to be tough and we’re under no illusions about that.

"They're fighting to get that first win, but hopefully the boys can get three points, and we can come home happy on Saturday."
