Carmichael turned in an impressive performance as second half substitute in the home defeat to Walsall before starting the games against Crawley and Coventry.
While the 18-year-old admits he has been surprised to have forced his way into the first-team so soon after returning from injury, he added that he hopes to start part of first-team fold in the coming weeks.
“For me, last week was great and I can’t ask for much more than to have started the last two games. It’s been a step up from playing in the youth team, but I think I can deal with it and I think I’ve done ok,” he told afcb.co.uk.
“I’ve been back from injury for just over a month, so to be involved with the first-team so soon came as a bit of surprise but it’s good for me.
“I trained with the first-team the week before the Walsall game but I didn’t even expect to be on the bench. I thought I would be lucky to stay in the squad for the game at Crawley, so it was great to start.
“It’s been a tough week and I feel tired but happy. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season now, and hopefully I can stay around the first-team and see what happens.”
Having worked under Paul Groves and Shaun Brooks as part of the youth team before receiving a call up to the first team, Carmichael was disappointed to see the pair leave the club last week.
But quickly turned his attentions to impressing first team coach Dennis Rofe and development coach Chris Hargreaves ahead of the trip to Coventry.
“Paul and Shaun pushed me on when I was in the youth team and they definitely made me a better player,” he said.
“But I’m looking forward to seeing who will be coming in and will be doing my best to impress, and hopefully I can stay involved in the first-team.”
