Adam Taggart has continued his K-League hot-streak with an equaliser for Suwon Bluewings in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with leaders Jeonbuk Motors.
Taggart – who played his first match for Australia in close to five years in the Caltex Socceroos 1-0 loss to Korea Republic earlier this month - prodded home a lovely 72nd-minute finish to rescue Suwon a point.
The 26-year-old WA-born striker has scored seven goals in 14 appearances following his move from Hyundai A-League outfit Brisbane Roar in February.
Suwon are eighth in the K-League following Sunday’s draw against league heavyweights Jeonbuk, for whom former Sydney FC and Central Coast Mariners attacker Bernie Ibini played 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, there was late heartbreak for Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper Mitch Langerak in Nagoya Grampus' 2-1 loss to Shimizu S-Pulse in the J-League on Saturday.
Langerak, a late withdrawal from Australia’s Busan training camp earlier this month, produced a couple of excellent saves, including one super reaction stop to parry a second-half header from Shimizu midfielder Renato.
Brazilian striker Douglas eventually fired one past the Aussie shot-stopper and Nagoya thought they’d snatched a point when Naoki Maeda equalised in stoppage time, only for Kenta Nishizawa to stroke in a winner in the 95th minute.
