The Baggies lost theri game against Manchester City on Sunday and are just five points above the drop zone.
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.”
