Carson wants Baggies to bounce back

The Baggies dropped to 10th spot after Sunday’s home defeat to

Manchester City, a result which followed on from the reversal at

Blackpool and left them just five points above the drop zone.

Skipper Carson stressed the importance of Albion keeping distance

between themselves and the cluster of clubs behind them ahead of

away games with bottom three sides West Ham and Wigan. He said: “We

know we need to get something from the next two games. “We’ve had

two successive losses, something we’ve not had before this season,

and something we’re not used to. “We need to get our heads around

the Man City game quickly and try to get two results this week.

“Looking at the league table, the middle-part is very tight. “We’re

only a couple of losses from being dragged into the mix so we don’t

want that to happen.” Carson added: “Even when we’ve won this

season, we’ve kept our feet on the ground and always looked to the

next game. “We need to do that with defeats too – but Wednesday (at

West Ham) is a big game.”
