Rommy Boco aiming to build on promising start at Plymouth Argyle
ATTACKING midfielder Rommy Boco is aiming to build on the promising start to his career at Argyle.
Boco, a free agent recruit from Accrington Stanley in the summer, is one of only four players to have started all eight of the Pilgrims' competitive games this season.
The other three are captain Conor Hourihane, Lewis Alessandra and on-loan Yeovil Town striker Reuben Reid.
Boco arrived at Home Park with a reputation as a goalscoring midfielder and has already netted twice for Argyle.

He was on target in both of the Pilgrims' games away to Cheltenham Town – one in League Two and the other in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Boco hopes to see more of the ball in matches as he and his new team-mates get to know each other even better.
The 28-year-old has primarily played on the right of midfield, although he has also been used by manager John Sheridan in a central role behind Reid.
Boco told Herald Sport: "We have been up and down as a team and it's something we are working on, to be consistent.
"We are trying to find a way to play good for 70-80 minutes, but I think there is still confidence."
Argyle have won three of their last four games in League Two, with the exception being a 2-1 defeat at Morecambe which came after they had taken the lead.
A 1-0 victory over Bristol Rovers at Home Park last Saturday put the Pilgrims on nine points from the first six games of the campaign.
Boco said: "I think we shouldn't be too happy with that because there were more points to be taken.
"We were very poor in the first two games, and there is some regret about losing to Morecambe.
"But it was a good three points last Saturday. We were much better after a poor first half so I think we deserved that."
Boco also thought the win against Bristol Rovers was a reward for the support of the Green Army.
There was an attendance of 8,631 for the fixture at Home Park, which was the best in League Two last weekend.
Argyle have another chance to pick up a win at Home Park when they play Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow.
Boco said: "We have been well supported and, hopefully, we can get three points again.
"It's up to us. If we keep winning games, there will be more fans. It's always better to play in front of more people, than in an empty stadium, like we are going to have in some places away from home."
Boco signed a one-year contract with Argyle late in pre-season and has had to work hard on catching up on his fitness levels.
He said: "I'm starting to know my team-mates better and what they like, and they are starting to know that I like to be on the ball.
"Sometimes, I'm not involved in games because I don't touch the ball, but we are getting there. The manager has been working on it."
Boco continued: "If you look at Cheltenham away, I was on the wing but I got a lot of the ball so it was easy for me to show that I can play football.
"I'm trying to come inside to be involved more, and trying to score a few goals as well."
AN ARGYLE XI will play away to Southern League Premier Division club Bideford in a friendly at the Sports Ground on Tuesday, October 1 (7.45pm).
