Taggart finding rhythm at Fulham

Australian striker Adam Taggart says he is finding rhythm after a frustrating start to his Fulham career.

The seven-time Socceroo underwent groin surgery in September last year, just months after being signed by the English outfit.

But Taggart was on the scoresheet for the under-21s on Thursday, netting the winner in a 4-3 victory over Chelsea in the Premier League International Cup quarter-finals.

The former Newcastle Jet said he was slowly finding form.

"I feel really good," Taggart told the Fulham website.

"It was a tough start being injured for so long. Now I’m back and getting into a rhythm of games. It’s really nice to be back, I’m feeling 100 per cent, so hopefully I can kick on.

"All the boys have been fantastic and are giving me some great opportunities on the pitch.

"I have to praise the boys behind me to get me the ball in good positions."

Taggart's late winner came after he got on the end of Tim Hoogland's knock-down from a corner.

But the 21-year-old was full of praise for his team-mates.

"I saw big Tim coming in at the back stick so I just made sure I got in front of my man so that I could tap in. Any number nine loves a good tap in," Taggart said.

"It was nice to get the winner but full credit has to go to all the boys who fought the whole game and really dug deep, because for a lot of the game we were under the pump a fair bit.

"But it just goes to show that as long as you can stay disciplined and keep the work rate up then you can always get the win, so it was nice to walk away with the victory."
