Receiving priorities to shoot & score

The best forwards recognise where the spaces are developing before the ball has even got to them. Often the players are picking the ball up in tightly marked areas, so they need to recognise how to use their body to protect the ball and utilise the spaces to bring in other players, or to take a shot for themselves.
