Rickie Lambert impressed by Salomon Rondon at West Bromwich Albion

Salomon Rondon has scored three times in his first 13 appearances for West Bromwich Albion.

Rickie Lambert has told the Express and Star that Salomon Rondon has done excellently at West Bromwich Albion so far.

Rondon joined West Brom from Zenit St. Petersburg in the summer transfer window, and he has immediately become the club’s main man up-front.

The Venezuelan’s form has forced Lambert to play a peripheral role at the Hawthorns, but the England international insists that he has no qualms with being second choice.

“Salomon [Rondon] is doing really well,” Lambert said.

“He suits the way the managers plays and I am there for whatever minutes I get. I want to start but if not, I want to come on and try to affect the game and help the lads.”

Rondon has scored three times in 14 appearances for the Baggies so far, but his physical threat has given Tony Pulis’ side a good outlet.

Lambert did manage to prove his worth during West Brom’s match against West Ham United at the weekend though.

The former Liverpool man came off the bench at half-time in the fixture, and he helped turn the match in West Brom’s favour.

Lambert posed a big threat to West Ham’s defence, and he helped the Baggies claim a point, when his deflected effort ended up in the back of the net.

The draw at Upton Park has pushed West Brom up to 13th in the Premier League table, with their next fixture coming against in-form Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.
