Maidstone face Bromley for the second time in four days when the sides meet in the Kent Senior Cup semi-finals.
After Saturday's 2-2 draw in the National League, it's back to the Gallagher Stadium for tonight's cup clash.
United were hoping to clear Dean Beckwith's suspension following his red card at Hayes Lane but are out of luck and he'll miss this weekend's league game against Barrow instead.
Delano Sam-Yorke, Darius Osei, Jack Paxman and Josh Hare - substitutes at Bromley - are set to come into the side.
Magnus Okuonghae, left out of the 16, could feature along with Reece Prestedge, who has missed the last two games after his wife gave birth to a baby boy.
Saunders, speaking after the league game, said: "The ones that didn't start today will get minutes because we need to do that.
"Normally I'd arrange in-house friendlies on the Tuesday to give them minutes and we can't do that if we've got games like this.
"Andre Coker's picked up a knock, there's one or two with knocks, they'll get rested and the others will get games.
"If you look at the bench today, Josh Hare, Delano, Pax, Darius, they're all first-team players so I've got no issue with doing that."
Okuonghae has gone from being Maidstone's senior centre-half at the start of the season to being left out of the squad.
It wasn't a decision the manager took lightly.
He said: "I had to make a decision on the bench.
"Josh Hare can play centre-half, centre-mid, right-back and Mags is an out-and-out centre-half, so I felt it was the right decision to make.
"I pulled Mags before the game, he was aware of the decision and he'll be available for selection on Tuesday.
"It's never nice as a player being left out.
"There would have been two left out if Reece had been here as well. That's part of having of having a squad.
"It's not nice but it's decisions you have to make."
