Pilkington has warned Roberto Mancini's squad that the Canaries are brimming with confidence and are fully capable of ending the Lancashire club's title hopes this weekend.
"They need to come out and beat us to stand any chance in the championship but we'll carry on with what we're doing and try to take three points off them as well," he said.
"We've played all season without fear. We've proved we're more than a match for anyone.
"We won't take our foot off the gas, and we'll hope for another win against one of the best sides in Europe."
