repeater and footswitches

I just ordered a Repeater and was curious whether I could use some Roland
FS-5U footswitches I have lying around to control (i.e. start/stop) loop
recording for hands-free operations. Reading the manual I read the 

"Any TRS style 3-button foot controller (like a Digitech FS-300) gives foot
control over play/stop, record and tap tempo"

Obviously the FS-5Us are single-button momentary footswitches, but I could
theoretically plug 2 into the Repeater via a Y-cable to hopefully get 
to some subset of the "play/stop, record and tap tempo" functionality that
the FS-300 achieves. Has anyone tried this ?

(Luckily the FS-300 isn't too expensive, so I'll probably spring for it if 
can't make use of my FS-5U units)

thanks for any info.,
