Paul Scharner is disappointed he will miss out on West Brom's upcoming derby match with Wolves.
The Austrian will sit out the Black County derby through suspension after being sent off against Aston Villa on Saturday.
A win for Roy Hodgson's Baggies would push their bitter rivals one step closer to the Premier League trapdoor.
Scharner has been inundated with messages from fans to help send Wolves down and is gutted he will not be available for selection.
"I am really disappointed to miss the derby," he said. "If you look on Facebook, I've had a lot of responses about the derbies.
"They are the two biggest games of the season and our fans are asking me on Facebook to send them down.
"It will be a massive game for Wolves but it's massive for us as well because we want to win the derby. It is important to the supporters.
"But you can't think about the rivalry. We have to keep focused on a good finish and try to end the season as high as possible.
"We want to finish as the highest-placed midlands team in the Premier League."
Scharner was sent off for two bookable offences by referee Phil Dowd and praised his team-mates for overcoming his absence.
He said: "I have no complaints, not really. It was maybe the wrong time to get my first red card in the English game.
"But the team battled on with 10 men and did really well. We fought back and I think in the end we deserved to win."
