Screen 3 (20 mins)

The session progresses with a recovery player being added to blue after 3 seconds this could be the Holding Midfield player or Attacking Midfield player based on the position. It is important the player are used to working in area's of the field with players that would likely recover and double back.

Progression: The recovery player position is changed to where the outside forward would be recovering from. We could use two recovering players too if the focus was on delay with double and triple teaming.

Coaching Points

Restraint drop/ jockey

Delay

Dictate Play

Pressure and Cover when close enough

Reversal of roles if player gets beat covering player becomes pressuring player. Pressuring player recovers space to be the supporting 2nd defender

Exercise alternates sides. With the same set up before two attackers wide vs The Full Back with a recovering defender added based on the coaches call. Here we combine both days of training together with the aim of preventing crosses but also dealing with them as the center backs and weak side full back are added 3 attackers look to make runs into the box. We can manipulate the recovering defender based on the teams need to prevent crosses or to work on winning balls in the box.

Coaching Points

Dictate and Deny

Prevent crosses

Recovery Runs

Anticpation

Pressure and Cover (when 2v2)
