Tonbridge face a test of character when they take on fellow strugglers Dorchester.
Tommy Warrilow's men will look to follow up Monday’s superb 2-1 win over Eastleigh with three more points on Saturday.
Goals from Michael Bakare and Mark Lovell downed the Spitfires at Longmead as Angels completed the double over the pre-season Skrill South title favourites.
But a different challenge lies ahead this weekend, with second-bottom Dorchester – two places and four points below Angels – the next visitors to west Kent.
Tonbridge haven’t recorded back-to-back wins in the league since August and for manager Warrilow, it’s time that changed.
He said: “It’s about mental strength. The lads are fit, they’re good footballers and know their jobs but it’s easy to start letting your mental strength let you down when the games come thick and fast.
“We’ve played well in our last six games and on Monday we continued that. If we play like that, we’ll win more games than we lose.”
Sonny Miles spent two nights in hospital this week with a throat infection but the defender could be involved against Dorchester. However, Jon Heath and Lee Browning are both suspended so Warrilow may call dual-registered striker Luke Blewden back from Lewes to sit on the bench.
