Adam Taggart moved amongst the top scorers in the K-League as he netted his seventh goal of the campaign in this weekend’s action.

Taggart scored the equalizer as Suwon Bluewings claimed a 1-1 draw away with Jeonbuk Motors on Sunday.

Taggart, who put in a full shift, scored in the 72nd minute. Bernie Ibini also played a full game for Jeonbuk.

The Socceroo’s goal came from a layoff from Waguininho, allowing Taggart to burst forward with two touches before a good finish at the near post.

The strike is Taggart’s seventh of the season from 14 appearances, making him equal third top scorer in the K-League.

In the Japanese J.League, Mitch Langerak was beaten twice, including from a last minute strike, as Nagoya Grampus went down 2-1 to Shimizu S-Pulse.

Langerak made several excellent saves to keep scores level until a ball across goal allowed Douglas to score the opener.

Nagoya leveled but Langerak conceded late with Kenta Nishizawa’s shot too powerful and going under his right arm.
