Norwich City midfielder Anthony Pilkington suggests he and his teammates can produce a top-half finish in their first season back in the top flight.

Norwich City midfielder Anthony Pilkington suggests he and his teammates can produce a top-half finish in their first season back in the top flight.

The Canaries sit 10th on 43 points after being widely tipped to go straight back down to the Championship immediately after they were promoted.

But following yesterday’s 2-1 win at Tottenham, goalscorer Pilkington is gunning to finish higher than supposed ‘big’ club Liverpool by season’s end.

"All the pundits were talking about us finishing bottom of the league so to finish above Liverpool would be unheard of, wouldn't it?" the Norwich winger said.

"I'm from Blackburn-way, up in the north-west, and that would be a great scalp."
