Margate will need checks on the fitness of Tom Mills and Tom Wynter ahead of their home FA Trophy third qualifying round replay against Bath City on Tuesday.
Wynter missed Saturday's game at Burgess Hill Town in the Bostik Premier due to a damaged shoulder while fellow defender Mills injured his knee in the 1-1 draw.
Manager Steve Watt explained: "I know from my time with him at Maidstone that Tom (Mills) is not the sort to make a meal of things so when he went down we knew there must be something wrong.
"He took an early knock on his knee which affected him but typically he soldiered on and hopefully he'll be okay for the Bath game."
Wynter, who has been excelling at centre-half, damaged shoulder ligaments after a heavy fall in the first Trophy tie at Bath - which finished goalless last Tuesday - and Watt says they will assess his fitness before making a decision.
Watt felt his side played well enough to have won the first meeting at Twerton Park, but he admits that will count for nothing in the replay.
He added: "Bath are a very good side and they had some good patches of possession but they created very little.
"They only had one opportunity which you think they probably should have scored whereas their keeper made four very good saves including one 'worldie' from Kane Haysman late in the second half.
"The fact that we did well down there should bode well, but Tuesday is a different game. We don't how the journey might affect them, it didn't affect us last week and we'll go into the game with confidence.
"We've got a lot of players who have played Conference South or above so I don't see the gap (between the sides) being as big as some people might."
Haysman scored the Gate equaliser at Burgess Hill and Watt admits he is delighted to have signed the 22-year-old on a deal until the end of the 2018/19 season.
He added: "We want to build something here, lay down a foundation so we need to get the right type of players at the right age and Kane ticked all the boxes."
Watt has also signed former Brentford Academy player Nathan Fox, who played briefly at Hartsdown under former boss Nikki Bull last season.
The full-back, who has been training with the Blues, was given a start at Burgess Hill and Watt felt he was Gate's best player.
He explained: "Nathan's been messed about a little bit (by other clubs) since he was last here. He got in touch a few weeks ago and I thought he looked very strong on Saturday, he certainly did not look like he was short of match fitness."
