Salomon Rondon has sent his best wishes to West Brom ahead of their season-defining match against QPR at The Hawthorns on Wednesday.
Slaven Bilic’s men go into the final match of the regular Championship season knowing that all they need to do is win to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Brentford are one point behind the Baggies in third with Fulham two points behind the West Midlands club in fourth.
Both can overtake Albion if they drop points to QPR but former Hawthorns striker Rondon is hopeful that does not happen.
“Good luck to my Baggies friends, I hope it’s a great night that ends with West Brom back in the Premier League,” Rondon wrote on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday.

If Rondon can make himself available to play for us against QPR, that would be nicer than him sending a good-luck message.
Although the striker was widely criticised in his time at The Hawthorns, he did well enough on loan at Newcastle last season to suggest that in the right hands, he can be a top striker for a Premier League club.
Top strikers are West Brom have really lacked this season.
Hal Robson-Kanu and Charlie Austin had done just about enough to get Albion by before the coronavirus-enforced suspension of the season but neither have performed well at all since the league restarted last month.
One of those will start against QPR on Wednesday and one of those will need to put in a performance that far outweighs anything else they have done for the club this season.
