Truro City boss Kevin Hodges says his side are going though a "Jekyll and Hyde" period after their 2-1 loss to Bromley in Blue Square Bet South.
Andy Watkins gave City a 47th minute lead but Michael Malcolm equalised nine minutes later and Danny Waldren got the winner with 15 minutes left.
"I was hoping to get something out of the game, I though a point would be good enough," Hodges told BBC Cornwall.
City still need one more win to secure their Conference South status.
They travel to champions Woking before hosting second-placed Dartford in their final league game.
"We're a little bit Jekyll and Hyde, yes we've got two massive games and I still feel we need something from them," Hodges said.
"We go to the champions next week, there'll be a big crowd and they'll be playing with a freedom and relaxation whereas we've got to do a job to try and get points to stay in this division, so it's going to be a very tough game."
