Francois Zoko is enjoying leading the Glovers line alongside Olufela Olomola with both on target in the 3-2 win over Accrington Stanley at the weekend.

The Ivorian notched his second in as many matches, whilst Olomola bagged a brace to get off the mark in green and white at Huish Park - his first goals in professional football.

Zoko joked about the Southampton loanee being his 'boy' and revealed his enjoyment from linking up with the 19-year-old post-match.

“Fela’s a good player, he’s young and he listens – I like him," he told Glovers iFollow.

"He works hard, has a good mentality and when he scores everyone is buzzing.

“It’s good, in the dressing room. Everyday everyone is happy to come in and now we have to show it on the pitch.”

Both Zoko and Olomola sit at the top of Town’s scoring charts with two goals in League Two, but Zoko is targeting team success over personal accolades.

“I don’t see it (a head-to-head with Olomola) as a rivalry,” he said. “The most important thing for us it how the team performs.

“On Saturday, Fela scored and I scored - maybe next time it will be Otis and (Nathan) Smithy. We need goals from everywhere to make the team better and more difficult to stop.

“Personally, to have two goals in two is very good but as I always say, the important thing is the team and we did very well."

The Glovers are next in action with a trip to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday – the first ever EFL meeting between the two sides.
