Coaching the unit

- Press Centre Backs after they enter our defensive half

- When pressing show outside, but try to screen the unit in behind and stop the switch

- Striker and number 10 try to play in opposite halves

- The units should not be further than 6 yards apart

- Avoid being alongside with other units (be in angles!)

- Look to swoop the relationships between defending players (one press, the other covers)

- When Striker is defending Centre Backs, Number 10 to stay as close as possible to Red line to stop forward pass to Target Man.

- Two Midfielders in Reds should aim to be a yard close to direct opponent and should also ball being played to target man

- Shuffle across as a unit when the attackers switch possession to other side

- When ball is played over the top, Reds to drop off immediately and Number 10 should try to recycle possession if Blue Midfielders have a poor touch

- When ball is played backwards by Blue team, then Reds use that as an opportunity to move up on the field
