The talented forward admitted it was all about getting up to speed with the league’s level of quality.

“The first game I was just getting used to the A-League level, like the speed of the game but now I am progressing in and getting more comfortable on the ball which is good for me and I’m loving it,” he said.

Silvera knows he wants to improve and knows exactly where he has to in his game.

“The main focus for me is goalscoring, I just want to help the team out by scoring goals and that is the best for me,” he said.

“Just getting into the box a bit more, creating goal scoring opportunities for others and for myself is a priority.”

His emergence into the squad and a string of quality performances has launched Silvera to become a fan favourite at Central Coast Stadium especially among the younger generation of fans.

“I’ve seen a couple of banners up which is good to see and very positive for me,” he said.

“Hopefully I can keep going and build on that support for the young fans.

“It’s very hard to think of (the support) because I did not think it would happen this quickly, but it is positive to think about.”
