The Irish midfielder netted his third goal in three league games at Carrow Road to help the Canaries to a 2-1 result over Wigan Athletic which has the Norfolk club placed seventh on the table ahead of a hectic Christmas schedule.
"It's a massive win going into a tough period," Pilkington told the club's official website.
"It's great for the fans and it's good to bounce back from the defeat against Aston Villa [in the Capital One Cup] on Tuesday. We've picked up a lot of points in the last couple of weeks and it means we're sitting nicely going into a tough Christmas period so we're delighted with that.
"I'm enjoying things at the minute, the fans really get behind us and I think it's three goals in three games here, but it's three points and it's massive for us."
