The high-flyers have swooped for prolific Wingate & Finchley man Chris Chase, and they have also brought Brentwood Town forward Ellis Remy to Park Drive.
Both could make their debuts in Saturday`s match at home to Ilford.
“Chris can play down either side or as an out-and-out striker,” Maldon joint-boss Brad King said.
“He’s also got a proven track record at this level, having finished last season with twenty goals for Wingate.
“As for Ellis, he too has a good record and a wealth of experience of non-league football.
“We felt it was important to strengthen our attacking options, to provide a bit of competition up front.
“Joe Sweeney has been our main striker in recent weeks and, while he’s done very well, it’s good to keep players on their toes.”
Remy played a couple of games for npower League Two side Lincoln City at the start of his career and also spent time at Braintree Town and Heybridge Swifts.
He made one appearance for the Montserrat national team last October, in their 7–0 defeat to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines at Victoria Park, Kingstown.
However, after receiving two yellow cards, he was sent-off in the 68th minute.
King was delighted by the way his side bounced back to form with a 4-0 victory at Ware last Saturday.
It came just a few days after his players were left licking their wounds, following a 4-0 defeat at rivals Heybridge.
“It was a great way to bounce back and it means that of the seventeen matches we’ve played on a Saturday, we’ve only lost once to East Thurrock United.
“That’s title-winning form.
“However, of the dozen games we’ve played on a Tuesday, we’ve lost eight and conceded seventy per cent of our goals.
“That can’t be a coincidence and comes down to attitude and preparation, not to mention the fact we’re often missing key players due to work commitments.
“Thankfully, we haven’t got any more midweek league games and I’m confident we can stay in the promotion frame.
“There are eight teams vying for the top five spots but, having been in the top four all season, it would be a disaster if we dropped away.
“We’re determined not to let that happen.”
