Bakgaga are currently rooted to the bottom of the Absa Premiership standings and, with games becoming fewer by the week, are edging ever closer to dropping back down to the First Division.
Mammila says since he game the payers the talk, they have put in two good displays to forge out a draw and a win in their last two games against title hopefuls Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United respectively.
"I think I got the answers [as to their feeling on not getting bonuses] from the last two games," he adds.
"I knew that SuperSport United would be an easy game for us. I was sure of three points from the start, I was just playing with words when I said we want one point, and three would be a bonus. I knew we have the upper hand against them."
