NEWPORT County AFC's squad will have to wait until Sunday at the earliest to find out whether they are going to play at Wembley as manager Michael Flynn mulls over his selection headaches.

The Exiles have a number of tight calls for the League Two play-off final against Morecambe (kick-off 3pm) after they edged past Forest Green in the semi-finals.

Captain Joss Labadie, Kevin Ellison, Ryan Taylor, Nicky Maynard and Priestley Farquharson all made an impact off the bench at the New Lawn to give the coaching staff food for though.

It would be a surprise if the same 18-man squad doesn't get the nod for Wembley but Flynn is yet to decide.

"It'll either be Sunday or Monday," said the manager, whose selection will be made public an hour before kick-off. "Sometimes I tell them the day before and other times it's on the day.

"I will speak to my staff and make sure we are clear in what we want to do, then go and make the decision."

The comeback in Gloucestershire last weekend shows that the finishers are as important as the starters.

"Players might be disappointed but they need to get behind their teammates and I am sure they will," said Flynn.

Luke Gambin, Dom Telford, David Longe-King and Jake Scrimshaw are among those who are likely to miss out on the 18-man squad for the final.

County's welcome selection issues are in part down to the sterling efforts of the conditioning staff and medical team, who have helped keep players fit and healthy with the added issues of the pandemic.

After being down to the bare bones at times in 2019/20, Flynn has never been in the position of being without options with only a handful of lengthy lay-offs.

"I can't speak highly enough of Tom [Gittoes, physio], Lewis [Binns, sports therapist], the doc [Daniel Vaughan] and the rest of the team," said Flynn.

"They have been absolutely amazing, they are very good at their jobs and are outstanding people that I have a lot of time for. They are people that I trust and they are almost the perfect team."
