3) Turn to receive the ball back foot to allow a good follow up pass.

5) Target player can move side to side so should look to play their part in creating the passing lanes.

6) Communication here is vital in order to give the players an idea of where to put the ball.

7) As the target men can not score, it makes sense to pressure ansd defend the receivers as numbers are even, and try to stop them picking up the ball.

Combition Play

Organization:As many 7x15 or 10x20 grids as required. 4 Players per grid. 1 ball per group. Pop up goals with spare balls in.

Instructions:

Player A plays ball to player B who must turn and get the ball to player D. Player D receives the ball and player C pressures. Players D & B must now play 2v1 against C. When they break the half way line, either player D or B now takes on player A in a 1v1. Players then rotate and the play always starts from the same place.

Coaching Points:

1) Try to receive the ball on the back foot but high enough up the field to penetrate but not too high that an intercept is possible.

2) Passes must be played quick enough to allow player to escape the defender, too slow and it puts the receiver under pressure.

3) Read defenders positioning and body shape to decide on when and where to take them on in the 1v1 situation.

4) When initiating the 2v1, whether to dribble or to pass will be decided by the positioning of the defender and his body angle. Read the defenders intentions.

5) The first touch of player D must be spot on as if it is not, then the defender will be on top of him and prevent the 1-2 release pass.

6) Turnign player can use arm and body to get a little bit physical and shield the ball.

7) Turning player must get into the best position to receive the 1-2 pass and read the defenders intentions when deciding where to go.

Progressions:

Progress in to 2v1 at both ends.
