What should we do to beat bigger but not technically better teams?

We have been promoted to a higher league this of which I think the kids thoroughly deserve. I've one concern though, at this age you find a number of boys that have experienced growth spurts and are usually disproportionally bigger (not technically better). I find with these games my boys get pushed off the ball and struggle to cope with the strength of these boys. How does one set up a team against a squad that's not better but stronger and bigger.

teach your team to make the field as big as possible. (create space) in order to isolate the bigger boys and then beat them with technical ability (fast dribbling, 1-2 combination play) or create the space and then focus on switching play and creating over loads in that area so that your boys are not caught 1v1.
