James Morrison has admitted confidence is low after West Brom crashed to a sixth successive defeat.
The Baggie's were among a number of Premier League sides to crash out of the FA Cup at the third round stage after a 1-0 defeat at Reading on Saturday.
The result at the Madejski marked six defeats in a row for Roberto Di Matteo's men, with matters made worse by the dismissal of defender Jonas Olsson.
The 24-year-old midfielder is mindful that it will be difficult to raise spirits in the dressing room ahead of next weekend's game against Blackpool.
"We are on a slippery slope. That wasn't us out there and we are disappointed," said Morrison.
"We hadn't won in five before this and we are struggling in the league so yes, confidence is low, it's got to be.
"We played a strong-ish team, but the lads have played four games in eight days now and we felt it.
"It's up to the manager to keep our spirits high. Obviously they are not now because we've just got beaten again.
"We wanted to get back on the winning track, but it wasn't to be. We've got to get back to what we were trying to do at the start of the season."
With West Brom now hovering just a single point above the relegation zone, their next three fixtures could go a long way to deciding their Premier League fate.
The Baggies are set to face Blackpool, Blackburn and Wigan, with Morrison hoping that a much-needed two-day rest will result in three points next weekend.
"Now we've got a few days off to forget about this and a massive game against Blackpool coming up," added Morrison.
"We've highlighted how big this month is going to be so we have got to try and put the last few weeks behind us.
"If we get three points against Blackpool then all these defeats are out the window. I don't think anyone can question we put the effort in, it's just the confidence is not there.
"We've been playing well. I think it would be a different story if we weren't creating chances against Man United, Bolton and Blackburn. We've got to take the positive that we are playing well and take it to Blackpool."
