Maidstone face Gateshead for the second week running when the sides meet in the FA Trophy.
A quarter-final place is on the line when United host the Heed at the Gallagher Stadium on Saturday.
United lost 2-1 at the International Stadium in the league last weekend, a game they felt they should have won, and have a chance to put the record straight.
It will Gateshead’s second visit to the county town this season, having come from two goals down with 10 men to draw in September.
Maidstone have negotiated two rounds of the Trophy during their league slump, beating Torquay and Heybridge, and have their eye on the last eight.
Boss Jay Saunders said: “We’ve played Gateshead twice now, this will be the third time, and they’ve been close games.
“Something’s got to change for us, we’ve got to do something to try and get a win.
“You’re in the last 16 of the Trophy and it’s an opportunity although I wouldn’t care if it’s Trophy or league, the facts are we’ve got to start winning games.
“There’s going to be pressure because we’re at home, if the boys aren’t doing it they’re going to get stick from the fans because we’re not winning games.
“When you’re not winning games, there’s pressure on you and you’re putting more pressure on yourselves.”
