The Sicilians had fallen out of the race completely, but recent results leave a sliver of hope.
"If we are to carry on chasing this objective that everyone wants, then we need to pour pride and character on to the pitch," said the Coach.
"We want to continue to dream. Repeating what we achieved last season would be a great result.
"Clearly we are facing a determined Parma side that needs points to secure safety, but we too are going out there with a lot of motivation.
"If we go into this game with the right attitude, aware of our capabilities and with our feet firmly on the ground, then we can continue the positive path we've been on for the last few games."
