- Timing of runs, near post, back post

- Encourage crosser to dribble in if runs are late, or no attacking option present (still looks to make a short pass)

Progressions:

- Add a 2nd defender that tracks Opposite mid/that crashes into box

- Add a 3rd defender that Fwd/CM combines (Give & Go) around with crosser, which then defenders cross
