Pocket screw strength for sliding door


I am building an interior sliding door for a mounted track using 1x4 boards (barn door style). I am thinking of pocket-screwing the boards into a 2x4 in which I'll mount hardware to hang from the track. You guys think that pocket screws will be strong enough? It is a 48" wide door, so it is pretty heavy.

I figured the most conservative I could do would be 2 screws per board, one going up into the 2x4 and one coming down in from the 2x4. What do you all think?

Thanks
