The Mariners are on the bottom of the table after four rounds with two draws and two losses.

In contrast Perth are top and undefeated under new coach Tony Popovic.

But Hoole believes Central Coast have nothing to fear on Sunday and maintains they are still full of belief despite suffering back-to-back losses before the international break.

100%. It's only early days, we've got plenty of games left," the attacker said.

"There's plenty of confidence, we're confident all the time even though we've not had good results. We're 100% focused and we take it game by game. We're looking forward to the trip to Perth.

"They're at the top of the league, a complete different team to the one of the last couple of years, now under Popa.

"So it will be a very tough game but one we're looking forward to and if we go there with confidence, and take the mistakes out of our game that we've had in the first couple of rounds, then we'll do a good job over there.

"You can't focus on them too much, even though they are at the top. If you focus too much on the opposition it can be downfall... I enjoy playing there."

The Mariners went down 4-1 to Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park in their last match.

But Hoole feels there were positives to take from the match.

"In the patches of our last game against Victory we showed in the first 20 minutes we sort of played all over them," the 25-year-old said.

"They had a good couple of patches there as well, so in the first 20 minutes of that game we were good and then we made a mistake again and it cost us goals. If you do that, especially against the big teams, then you're not going to get results.

"We need to make sure we defend for the team, individually, as well as a team."
