Carson eyes 'Great Escape'

West Brom goalkeeper Scott Carson insists the club can still retain their Premier League status. The Baggies are seven points adrift of safety at the foot of the table, but England goalkeeper Carson maintains the club can stay up. Carson has already suffered relegation once in his career when he went down at Charlton - whilst on loan from Liverpool - and he is desperate to avoid another drop. "I've been through it before at Charlton. I've had the experience and it is not a nice feeling, getting relegated," Carson said. "I've just been trying to help the lads and tell them what it's like and we're doing our best to stay in the Premier League. You try to keep going. "We're going to need four or five wins to stay up but stranger things have happened. We will continue to work as hard as we have been and just hope we get a bit of luck." West Brom are the only club ever to have been bottom at Christmas and survived in the Premier League and Carson is hoping the club can produce another 'Great Escape'. "I wasn't here for the 'Great Escape' of four or five years ago but the lads who were - like Robbo [Paul Robinson] and Jonathan Greening - said it was a great experience. "It would be nice for rest of lads to share the experience by doing it again this season."
