Chris Brunt has called for cool heads to ensure West Brom do not become embroiled in the bitter fight for Premier League survival below them.
A winless run of four games has seen them drop down to 14th place and hovering just above the teams in immediate danger.
The Baggies face two of those sides in forthcoming games as they host relegation-threatened Blackburn and Queens Park Rangers either side of a daunting trip to Manchester City.
And while the West Brom skipper was quick to reassure fans that their destiny is still in their own hands, he admits a win against struggling Rovers on Saturday would go a long way to settling nerves on the terraces.
"We need to start picking up a few results otherwise we are going to get dragged back into things," Brunt told the club's official website.
"It is going to take a lot of results to drag us back in, but if we are not putting points on the board ourselves there is always a danger of that.
"That is the worst case scenario and it is up to us to start putting points on the board, starting this week, because our last two performances have not been good enough."
