Truro City striker Stewart Yetton has backed chairman Kevin Heaney as the club prepares to face a winding-up petition in the High Court on Monday.
It was served by HM Revenue & Customs over money they say they are owed.
"I've been at this club for five or six years now and Kev's been great for the boys," Yetton told BBC Radio Cornwall.
"He's having a tough time but we've got to stick together. If it wasn't for Kev the club wouldn't be in the position it's in."
Truro have won their last two matches, including an 8-2 thrashing of Farnborough Town, as they adapt to their first season in the Blue Square Bet South.
"When you have problems off the field it will always be there and people will look to use that sometimes as an excuse because mentally it is tough for everyone," added former Plymouth Argyle striker Yetton.
"It is tough, but we're professional and we'll get on with it."
