BOSS Matty Holmes admitted Wimborne Town’s Dorset Senior Cup exploits had left him with a pleasant selection dilemma.

Holmes made a host of changes as Wimborne claimed the scalp of Southern Premier outfit Dorchester in the quarter-final on Tuesday.

Victory maintained their imperious form in November as four successive wins in Southern League West saw Magpies climb to sixth place.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's visit to struggling Barnstaple Town, Holmes told the Daily Echo: “Selection is going to be really tricky but it is a nice headache to have.

“I rested players for the Dorset Senior Cup and we gave a good account of ourselves. It is a squad game but it does make life difficult to choose a team.”

Holmes is sweating on the fitness of influential defender Billy Maybury who was forced off against Dorchester having taken a knock to his ankle.

Wimborne will be looking to avenge January’s 1-0 defeat by Barnstaple at Mill Road where the hosts have managed just one league win this season (3pm).

“We struggled there last season,” said Holmes. “We were beaten up a bit and were a little naïve.

“But we have done well on the road recently and have a lot of confidence.

“If we don’t get a positive result, it won’t be for a lack of trying because all the boys are working as hard as they can.”
