Albion's next game is at home to Newcastle United.
"We've lost two - we need to put it right," McAuley told the WBA website. "With Newcastle coming up there is no better game to do it. Hopefully by the end we'll have got more points than we got last year.
"There are targets there.
"And we desperately want to beat last year's target. We have to focus on that between now and the end of the season."
