It is a three-horse race in the Championship for the second automatic promotion spot as West Brom, Brentford and Fulham all have a chance.

The Baggies welcome QPR to the Hawthorns on Wednesday, with Brentford set to face Barnsley at Griffin Park.

Fulham still have a slim chance of leapfrogging both of those and go to Wigan, who could still need a win to secure their survival.

In a bizarre turn of events, talkSPORT producer and QPR fan, @TheOnlyGSK on Twitter, has admitted that he hopes his own side is crushed by the Baggies.

“West Brom absolutely tank us,” he said.

“I do not care how many you beat us by, I’ll take a 7-1 again – I want Bilic to sub himself on and score the winner at the end.

“I want Charlie Austin, I want him to dive for a penalty and then score a panenka. I really, really, all jokes aside, our rivals are riding on us and our performance tonight and I’m desperate for QPR to lose tonight.”

The prediction was made solely because if QPR do beat West Brom and Brentford go onto win against Barnsley, it would be them who have handed their nearest rivals promotion to the Premier League.

Wanting your own team to lose, though? We’re not sure about that.

West Brom will know that all they need to do is better the results of both the Bees and Fulham to seal second spot.

Slaven Bilic will be desperate for his side to take all three points though, and make sure that they don’t need to rely on results elsewhere once again in the Championship.

Mark Warburton has already confirmed he will be fielding his strongest side in order to collect three points though, much to the disappointment of West Brom, but also to this particular Hoops fan.
