Hawthorn defender James Sicily says the side is determined to reverse its form slump over the past month.
The Hawks have lost their past four matches to GWS, Collingwood and Melbourne, all at Giants Stadium, and were toppled by the Swans at the SCG last week.
Now in their second hub in Perth, the 15th-placed Hawks are hoping a stint in the west can reignite their 2020 season.
The losing streak has placed some heat on Hawthorn Coach Alastair Clarkson, but Sicily thought the pressure on his coach was somewhat misplaced.
“I suppose he‘s under the pump because you guys (the media) try to put him under the pump, but we’ve got full trust in ‘Clarko’, his track record speak for itself,” he said.
“The playing group has full confidence that we’ll turn this (season) around and it’s not so much on him, it’s more on the players not playing to the standard that we usually do.”
Hawthorn faces Carlton at Optus Stadium this Friday, and Sicily believes a change of states can re-energise the players.
