Socceroos to bang in more goals: Taggart

Striker Adam Taggart isn't worried about his dry spell at Suwon Bluewings as he returns to the Socceroos' lethal frontline.

Taggart has been sharp since his return to the national side, teeing up Aaron Mooy's screamer in a 3-0 win over Kuwait and bagging a brace in their 7-1 demolition of Taiwan.

But he's been suffering a goal drought in South Korea's K League 1 since his hat-trick against Gangwon back in mid-August.

The 26-year-old admits the Bluewings have collectively had a tough period with key players rested in league matches in the lead-up to their Korean FA Cup final over Daejeon FC on Sunday.

But the West Australian expects to deliver for the Socceroos if given the chance in their 2022 World Cup qualifier in Jordan.

"That's football, you know if you score every game you probably go to Real Madrid," Taggart told AAP.

"I'm not really worried about that too much, I know that when there's chances in the game (against Jordan) I'll be able to put away a couple.

"I'm happy to be part of a great team here where you know you'll get a lot of chances."

The Socceroos have scored 15 goals in the campaign thus far with only one against the form team in Asia as they take on Jordan in Amman at 6pm on Thursday (3am AEDT on Friday).

Taggart puts Australia's massive goal difference down to individual player form, but also just scoring ability from the frontline to the back of the park.

"You've got the midfielders who are banging in goals as well, (defender) Harry Souttar scoring every corner, so it's nice to know there's a lot people contributing to goals," he said.

The striker said Australia are preparing for their toughest match yet against the hosts, who are known for sitting deep and breaking on the counter.

Taggart said being patient and not getting too anxious early in the game when Jordan are fresh and able to hold their line would be crucial to getting a good result.

"We want to make sure we're ruthless and capitalise as much as we can because it's a big opportunity for the team to build on confidence," he added.

"This is your opportunity to make sure you're ready when it comes to the end of these qualifiers."
