Manager Darren Way is facing a selection headache for Town's trip to Newport County on Saturday (3pm).

The Glovers are in action for the first time in 10 days following the international break and face a trip to South Wales to take on an Exiles side also unbeaten since the opening day.

Looking to extend their five-match unbeaten run, the green and whites will be boosted by the returns of Shaun Donnellan, Sessi D'Almeida and Enes Mahmutovic from international duty. 

Adding to Way's selection dilemma, Wes McDonald and Rhys Browne have spent the week training after injuries. 

Speaking to iFollow Glovers, Town's boss is pleased to have selection decisions to make.

"Wes and Rhys have been on the training ground and I've got decisions to make. That's not just with Rhys and Wes because the whole squad is so strong going into Saturday, but that's healthy.

"It's the first time really that I've had a real selection headache, but would I change it? Probably not.

"To bring a player like Olomola back to the football club, I probably would have thought it unimaginable but to have that situation and option, I wouldn't turn that down. Having a headache isn't a bad thing."

After traveling across the globe in the last week, Way also has no concerns over the returning international trio.

All have reported back for duty at Huish Park with a clean bill of health.

"They've been sat on planes and traveled all over the globe but they've come back in good shape and are hungry and willing to fight for the football club."
