Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Roger de Sa is hopeful a bonus of R10 000-a-win will incentivise his players to start performing in their battle against relegation from the Absa Premiership

Dikwena have introduced a structure which sees the players receive 10k for a victory, R5 000 for a draw and nothing for a loss.

Currently, the struggling outfit are rock-bottom of the Absa Premiership standings and seemingly need something of a miracle to escape the dreaded drop to the National First Division.

"I'm a believer that players will play for a bonus, because it adds to their lifestyle (financially). So look, the club didn't have a bonus structure before and at least now there is something," De Sa told the Sowetan.

"We have to try anything, just reward them for good performances and results. It's exactly what it is, if you do well you get a bonus and if you don't do well, you don't get a bonus. 

"If you are in the team or not, you (still) get your salary. I think you want to create a bit of competition and an incentive. 

"If you are not in the team, you stay at home and party all weekend. If you are in the team you go away and play, but at least now if you go and play, you come back with something."
