Tonbridge Angels boss Tommy Warrilow has drafted in former striker Carl Rook and keeper Jack Smelt as cover but admits it is unlikely either will figure before the end of the season.
The pair have both signed Conference forms but Rook (pictured) is completing a four-game ban after being sent-off at Farnborough while playing for Eastbourne earlier this month and Smelt is dual registered with other clubs.
"We have got two forwards Frannie Collin and Mikel Suarez but ‘Rooky’ has come with no money involved, just in case we might need him," said Warrilow. "Jack’s the same but if he can get a game elsewhere then he will."
Warrilow looks set to face Chelmsford with only 14 players including three substitutes.
Jon Heath jarred his knee at Havant last week, centre-half Ben Judge is struggling with a hamstring problem, while Ade Olorunda is recovering from a cartilage operation, and Jon Main is sidelined with a knee injury.
Tonbridge face play-off contenders Chelmsford at Longmead on Saturday and Warrilow said: "They are on a different scale to us, a good established Conference side, who have been in and around the play-offs for the last couple of seasons. Even with two or three little knocks, they can still field a full squad."
He added: "I want to keep our season alive as long as possible, and have told the players we are not giving up on getting that fifth play-off place. Even though we are the rank outsiders, I will never say never."
