The club’s promotion hopes have taken a huge dent in recent weeks with three defeats in four games.
It’s been a tough run for Braintree and they’ve won just once in their last nine National League South fixtures.
Despite that, they’re only outside of the play-off places on goal difference and know a couple of wins could push them back into title contention.
The Iron travel to strugglers Bognor Regis Town tomorrow and Porter told the Braintree & Witham Times: “The pressure is on us as we need a victory on Saturday.
“The league is tight still, though, and there are only seven points separating the top eight sides.
“We were disappointed to lose last weekend, but other results went our way and you know that if you get back-to-back wins you are right back in the mix.
“With the two games coming up being against sides towards the bottom of the division, you’d like to think that we can make league placings count, but we have seen results this year mean nothing can be taken for granted.
“There are players whose heads can go down at times like this and that can rub off on others. So it’s our job to man manage players in different ways.
