When you know you're running forward with support it's all too easy to over-think the situation and then, before you know it, you've been tackled and the chance is gone!

To ensure your players know exactly what to do when running up the field, with a player in support, this session works on getting both attacking players to make the right decisions.

  • Firstly, the off-the-ball player should run into space and try to draw the defender out of position
  • Secondly the player in possession should also run into space
  • The key then is to decide what to do next...

Train your players to read the situation and decide on the best course of attack! Do they go it alone or do they pass around the defender to the support runner?
