Hunter Ports Newcastle Jets striker Adam Taggart is confident the goals will continue to come after scoring his first goal of the season against Adelaide on the weekend.
After failing to score in the opening three rounds, the Jets have scored four goals in the past fortnight to move into the A-League top six.
“It was nice, the nicest thing was getting the three points finally and it was a good team performance,” Taggart said.
“It was a good feeling that we created a lot of chances and really put them on the back foot, it was obviously nice to get the first goal of the season.”
Taggart felt the team-s performances were improving with each game and their confidence is high after remaining unbeaten in the last four games.
“Since the start of the season each week we-ve been progressing more and more and look more positive each week,” he said.
“After we scored those couple in the game against the Central Coast, going into the Adelaide game there was a lot of confidence going forward and that was obviously a bit of an issue in the first few games.
“Not being able to score a goal, once we got that first one against Central Coast then it sort of gives that feeling that they-re all going to go in.”
Prior to the Adelaide game Scott Neville was the solitary Jets goal scorer, but Taggart dismissed suggestions that he was feeling under pressure to find the back of the net.
“Not really, the only one who puts pressure on me is myself, I don-t take too much notice into the outside and I knew it was going to come, it was just a matter of time,” he said.
“I felt like as soon as one goes in, the confidence is up and they-ll all start to go in, now it-s in, it-s not such a relief it-s just more of a positive thinking going forward.”
With back-to-back home games against Brisbane and Melbourne Heart, Taggart said the team was looking forward to playing in front of the Jets supporters and getting some good results.
“I think with the Central Coast game it was a massive boost, we all had that feeling that we had great support behind us, the fans were absolutely magnificent that night,” he said.
“Going into the next home game is exciting for all of us and coming off a win we-re all going in there trying to get three points and flying with confidence.”
