Defensive Spacing - Middle Third (25 mins)

30x25 with 2 goals placed centrally rather than wide to emphasize teams looking to quickly go forward in middel third

Positions: Front 4 of 4-1-2-1 formation with outside defenders as neutral players.

If more players, remove goals and use target players.

How close are we to one another? (Get Compact)

How quickly do we need to get compact?

What is the cue?

How do we maintain this distance as the mall moves?

Forwards? Backwards? Sideways?

2nd defender close enough to support pressuring player

Other supporting players contract and maintain distance as long as ball is lost

Get compact quickly as soon as the ball is lost (cue)

move as a group to maintain distance in relation to the ball (as they play forward we drop deeper, back to front line)
