Using screws to install Vinyl Soffit???

I am installing Vinyl soffit on my newly constructed shed. I was wondering if I can use screws to attach the soffit to the fascia board. I would prefer screws to nails as it would be easier than to nail overhead. What type of screw and what size? If not screws, what type of nail and how long? I will be using J channel under the eave against the shed wall for the receiving channel.

Thanks,
Rob

Truss head screws will work best.
