Allan Moore's side are currently top of the standings after promotion rivals Partick Thistle and Dunfermline faltered on Saturday and the Ton edged out Falkirk.
Veterans Mark McLaughlin, Kevin Rutkiewicz and Martin Hardie have led the way for the Ton this term, with young stars such as Taggart and Michael Tidser also stepping up to the plate.
The former Hibernian youngster has been in and out of the starting line-up as Moore chops and changes his side to suit each weekend.
Battling with Craig Reid for a right-back berth, he has turned in a number of encouraging performances, however, and emerged as the Ton hero during their crucial Firhill win over Thistle last month.
His second-half winner is one of the highlights of the season so far for the 21-year-old but he is confident there can be plenty more to come as the Cappielow old guard lead the way.
He said: "I have gone close with shots against the bar and post so it was great to break my duck and score the goal to win the (Thistle) game.
"I had only been on for a couple of minutes and it was only my third or fourth touch of the ball.
"We then beat Dunfermline 4-2 three days later to go top of the First Division and I came on and played in that one as well so it was not a bad way to end 2012.
"I am gaining great experience by being included every week and playing in such a competitive division as the First Division is.
"Hopefully, my involvement will grow especially as I have played centre-half, right- back and on the right hand side of midfield and have really enjoyed every role.
"Thankfully, we have a good mix of youth and experience at the club and that will help us throughout the rest of this season."
