He may have been the hat-trick hero last week but Socceroos striker Jamie Maclaren is likely to be benched for Australia's World Cup qualifier against Chinese Taipei in Taiwan on Tuesday night.

Socceroos coach Graham Arnold is considering several changes to the side that beat Nepal 5-0 in Canberra on Thursday,  the most notable being be up front, where K-League top scorer Adam Taggart is favoured to lead the attack. Defender Milos Degenek and winger Awer Mabil are also chances to start.

The 26-year-old Taggart is in career-best form with Suwon Bluewings in Korea, having struck 16 goals in 28 appearances.

Chinese Taipei ’s best chance fell on Lin Chang-lun in the 32nd minute only for the midfielder to send his effort wide. Victory meant that a draw against hosts and defending champions Philippines on Tuesday will be enough for Pakistan to win the Peace Cup. But Pakistan’s win also kept alive

That return is likely to win him the chance on Tuesday night to stake his claim to become the   first-choice striker for the World Cup qualifying campaign.

Maclaren ensured there will be plenty of competition for the centre-forward role, bagging three goals against Nepal in Canberra last week, while Cyprus-based striker Apostolos Giannou is also in the squad.

The Socceroos have spent the bulk of their training sessions in Taiwan working on their attacking combinations. Their best chances against Nepal came from set pieces and they will be expected  to create more from open play against what is considered the weakest team in their qualifying group.

Brighton midfielder Aaron Mooy is likely to start against Chinese

Taipei and said Arnold was looking for a more fluent and consistent attacking performance.

"It is early days in the qualification process and we are working on all of our combinations and stuff like that to create more chances," Mooy said. "I still feel like we created a lot of chances to score more goals. The higher level you play, the less chances you get in the game."

Australia are facing many unfancied and lowly ranked nations in their first round of qualifiers and, while they are expected to win by big margins against these teams, they suggest they are still difficult games. It is not so much that the Socceroos are tested by the likes of Nepal and Chinese

Taipei but that it is difficult to break down teams that sit deep and defend with numbers inside the box.

"Sometimes it can be difficult, but I thought Nepal was fairly well organised," Mooy said. "Sometimes it can be difficult to break them down, but I thought we still created lots of chances and we were always on the front foot. I am sure it will probably be a similar game tomorrow. We are working on our combination play around the box to create more chances and hopefully score."

The midfielder sealed a deadline day loan move from Huddersfield to English Premier League side Brighton and said the transfer had already benefited his development. Mooy said  Brighton's preference for possession and patience on the ball suitedhis style more than the tactics of Huddersfield.

"It’s a different style of football," he said. "The manager at Brighton is wanting us to play out from the back all the time. It makes it more enjoyable for me, because that is the way I like to play, andI feel like it suits me. Hopefully I can keep improving and help the team more."
