Brisbane Roar forward Adam Taggart says he doesn't know what to expect from Perth Glory supporters when he returns to his former club for the first time since his controversial off-season exit.
WA-born Taggart left Glory for Brisbane in the off-seson, leading to a public war of words with Perth owner Tony Sage calling him a "liar".
Sage said Taggart "blindsided" the club, when Roar swooped for his signature, although Taggart later claimed Glory knew he was leaving.
The 25-year-old comes up against his former employers on Saturday for the first time since the acromonious split.
"I'm not sure how the fans will react," Taggart said.
"That's supporters, that's football. I'll just get on with it."
Taggart admitted there was additional hype around the match but said once he entered the field of play it would be just another game.
"Maybe sometimes before a game there's a bit more hype," Taggart said.
"Once you're on the field, it's the same each week.
"It's always nice playing at stadiums you're used to, nib being one where I've to a lot of fond memories.
"It's nice to be on a familiar field but once you're on the pitch the occasion isn't anything different to other games."
Taggart also conceded he was hopeful of selection in the upcoming Socceroos camp but not pinning his hopes on it.
"Obviously as an individual I'll be pushing as hard as I can," he said.
"But it'd be the same if there wasn't a Socceroos camp coming up.
"Brisbane Roar are the ones who've shown the faith in me and they're the ones I'll be working hard for every week."
