Defending the ball carrier

With the new own goal rule it's getting very critical to defend the player who is carrying the ball.The team that I coach had a major problem on this area last season.I've already told them what they sould do in order to make it difficult for the ball carrier to scan for a pass or hit the ball inside our defending circle,or at least make him to drible instead of making a dangerous pass.But,they are not used to doing it and we have conceived a lot of goals that way.We have the same problem at defending a free hit inside our 25 yards,when the attacker dribles with the ball for the neccessary 5 meters and then smashes it into our circle.I am trying to think of a way or an excersise that will make them do it,but I haven't found one.Any ideas for both ways could be very helpful.
