Rommy Gets It

ROMMY Boco might be relatively new to Plymouth, but he understands perfectly how important Tuesday night’s Devon Expressway Derby is to the Green Army.

The Argyle midfielder made a return to the Pilgrims’ starting line-up for the 1-1 draw at his former club, Accrington Stanley, on Saturday,

Stanley defender Tom Aldred’s 80th-minute equaliser of Reuben Reid’s first-half opener cost Argyle their place in the League 2 play-off positions, making a winning return against Exeter City something not far short of a necessity.

“The good thing is, we are still on a good run,” said Rommy, after the draw. “We haven’t lost and we are still really confident for the game on Tuesday.

“We are at home; there will be a big crowd; and I know exactly what it means for the fans and for the club. It’s up to us.”

The Benin international responded to manager John Sheridan’s recall at Accrington with an industrious performance on his former stomping-ground.

“I worked really hard,” he said. “I wanted to show that it wasn’t just to make me happy that he put me in the team, and that he can trust me any time he needs me.

“We will see on Tuesday what is going to happen, but I am always available, 100% - I will try never to disappoint him.”
