Dartford have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Billy Collings from Brighton and he makes his debut against Vanarama National South bottom club Margate at Princes Park on Tuesday.
Boss Tony Burman needed cover for Deren Ibrahim who has joined up with the Gibraltar squad ahead of the World Cup qualifier in Boznia Herzagovina this weekend, and for the trip to St Albans City on Saturday.
Darts moved third, five points clear of nearest rivals Chelmsford City following the 5-3 win over Truro on Saturday.
Burman watched Margate a few weeks ago, but believes the arrival of new boss Steve Watt, and new signings including James Rogers and Jack Evans from Maidstone, means they will be a difficult side to face.
He said: "There has been a lot of changes in personnel there since I watched them, and suddenly they have got players there who we know from playing for other clubs, and they look like they are having a go.
"Margate are down the bottom, but they have won and drawn matches recently, so we have got to be on our toes.
"I am not interested in what people say about how we play, at this time of this season it's all about getting three points."
Burman added: "There is a little bit of pressure on us, we are expected to just turn up and beat teams. It doesn't happen like that at this time of year, things go wrong, people make mistakes, but the result is the thing that counts."
Andy Pugh scored twice in the win against Truro and praised team-mate Duane Ofori-Acheampong for the part he played in his goals, and the win.
Pugh said: "He has been a big player for us. I think we have missed somebody with his presence in the last couple of seasons, but he adds to my game and been a big part in a lot of my goals.
"The Truro win was a great result, but now we have to be ready for Margate, and look to take things on and keep us firmly in the play-off positions."
Burman is monitoring Ofori-Acheampong's fitness as the striker has been troubled by a knee injury.
