I think countersinking with the screw will work, just do not pull the skirt trim board in with the screw to far. Drill the screw slowly so that it does not pull the skirt trim up to
tightly to the wall. A good grab into the wall stud with screws to pull the trim in some would help keep the trim from pulling away from the wall.
Tip- A simple way to find a wall stud is to tap the butt end of a hammer against the wall and listen for the solid sound, it will sound more hollow between the studs.
