WATCH: Taggart continues K-League scoring form to stake Socceroos claim

The attacker has really stepped it up since returning from injury

South-Korea-based striker Adam Taggart is making Socceroos coach Graham Arnold take note with another goal for Suwon Bluewings in the K-League.

The 26-year-old arrived in the penalty area at the right time on nine minutes to take advantage of a Jeju United mistake, with Suwon eventually running out comfortable 2-0 winners.

It's Taggart's third league goal in four games as he hits top form following a three-match stretch out injured with a leg complaint.

He has slotted in seamlessly to the K-League since departing Brisbane Roar and joining Suwon in February - scoring eight league goals and getting an assist in only 12 starts.

Taggart last started a game for the Australian national team during the 2014 World Cup but was used off the bench in the team's latest friendly against South Korea last month.

The centre-forward is Australia's most in-form striker, having found the back of the net 11 times in the A-League for Roar last season before he got his move abroad.

Mitchell Duke was Arnold's preferred option during the Korea friendly, while Jamie Maclaren and Apostolos Giannou were used in central striking roles during January's Asian Cup.

Taggart was touted as a future Socceroos star following a stunning 16-goal season for Newcastle Jets as a 20-year-old during the 2013-14 A-League campaign.

After earning a move to Championship club Fulham following his two appearances at the 2014 World Cup, Taggart couldn't manage to crack it in England and was eventually shipped out on loan to Scottish Premiership club Dundee United.

He returned to Australia with hometown club Perth Glory for two seasons before joining Roar on a big-money deal at the start of last campaign.

Despite scoring 11 goals and being one of Brisbane's best players, he decided to leave for Korea shortly after the resignation of Roar's coach John Aloisi.
