Function (15 mins)

Set-up

Mark area out as shown.

Red team play with 2 x Servers (Central Defenders), 4 midfielders, a withdrawn striker & a lone striker (target man)

Wingers and the lone striker must stay on outside of area but can move anywhere along there line.

Wingers are restricted to two touch.

Central defenders (Servers) can play passes to each other before playing into CM's to vary the service in to CM. The CB who passes into the CM can step in to area to make a 4 v 3 overload.

Object for the attacking team is to get the ball played to there lone strikers feet.

Key Factors

- Do CM's look to create space to recieve pass from Server on there back foot to play forward? Choice of pass from Server, does he play safe side, does he play back foot.

- Do Wingers adopt a positive position to create a passing line from CM's

- When ball is played into wingers, do players react to recieve pass, or create a passing line for Winger to play direct to our lone striker.

- When CB steps in what are the roles of the #6 & #8? Do they drop into a position to create a passing line for CB?

Progressions

- When the lone striker recieves the ball, can he set either winger to run the ball through the gate

- Can the lone striker link up with the withdrawn striker to allow the #10 to get the ball over the line.
