Dover manager Nicky Forster warned some of his players they will be playing for their futures at Crabble this weekend after Whites bowed out of the FA Trophy in Tuesday's third qualifying round replay.
Leading 2-1 in injury-time, Whites conceded a soft equaliser and then, in Forster's own words, "capitulated" in extra-time against a Chelmsford side who were down to 10 men.
Forster insisted: "The pressure is now on the boys to perform on Saturday and the chairman is 100% behind me.
"He has said ‘if they are not going to perform let’s get them out and get some new ones in,’ and that will be the case.
"We had got ourselves into a position where we should have seen the game out, but then produced some comical defending which you shouldn’t see at this level and then I thought we just capitulated in extra-time."
Whites now have two home games in four days in which to get back on track, with Boreham Wood the visitors on Saturday followed by Billericay on Tuesday.
Forster admitted: "I can see myself making changes for Saturday, that’s for sure."
