Leicester manager Ian Holloway has survival in his sights after Steve Howard's treble against West Brom boosted their Championship survival hopes.
The Foxes had trailed after a Robert Koren strike, but the dismissal of Albion's on-loan Aston Villa striker Luke Moore turned the game in their favour.
Gareth McAuley equalised for the visitors before Howard almost single-handedly destroyed Albion as the Foxes triumphed 4-1.
"We have got a massive job to do. It was awful when we dropped in that bottom three," said Holloway.
"But on the balance of the whole season and the chances that have happened we have to hold our hands up and say we haven't done well enough yet, but with seven games left I believe we will.
"We have to start building and I have got some good players here providing they are motivated like that.
"We kept our focus. Goals change games and once we headed one in there was a huge difference in the team.
"That is a monkey off our back as that was the first time this season Leicester City have gone a goal down and come back and won.
"I will be loving it if we can get another one because we have not won back-to-back games."
The defeat cast a major cloud over Albion's automatic promotion hopes as the side have won just one of their last six home games.
"Luke's sending off did affect us," Mowbray said. "It looked like he went chasing a ball.
"Officials make decisions that they see and we have to abide by them.
"Luke was very quiet after the game and we will have a chat with him when things calm down. He is a young player who is trying to impress.
"We have just got to get on with things now and we won't look too deeply at today. We need to move on to the next game.
"We got our noses in front and who knows what would have happened if it had stayed 11 v 11. I think it could have been different."
