Boco has sympathy for Accrington Stanley position
ROMMY Boco wishes his Accrington Stanley reunion was in better circumstances for the Reds.
The former fans’ favourite says he is worried by his old club’s winless start to the season. And although searching for his first home goal for new club Plymouth Argyle, who Stanley play at Home Park this afternoon (3pm), the Benin international says he doubts he would celebrate if he breaks that duck today.
“A goal would mean a lot to me because I haven’t scored at home yet.
“Both of them have been away to Cheltenham in the league and the cup so it would be nice,” said Boco, who ended his second spell with Stanley in the summer and joined League Two Pilgrims on a one-year deal.
“When you play in a big stadium with a lot of fans it’s a nice feeling to score. But I don’t think I would celebrate.
“I have friends at Accrington still and it’s not nice to see them at the bottom of the table.
“My priority is to win on Saturday but I wish we played them on another day because of their situation.
“They really need to win, but we need to win as well.”
Versatile forward Boco helped Stanley win promotion back to the Football League in 2006 during his first spell with the club.
He left in January 2008, had spells with Sligo Rovers, Burton Albion and in China before returning to East Lancashire in August last year, top scoring with 10 goals as the Reds achieved safety in the penultimate game.
The 28-year-old, who has played against Accrington only once before, when he was on Burton Albion’s books, added: “It will feel strange – more strange than the first time because then I didn’t know that many of the players.
“I played with most of the current squad last year.
“I am a bit worried for them but I have to be professional.”
