Short GS needs strategies for GK's who cover well.

Hi, have a short GS in Rep. She has practiced and applied lots of strategies including holding, clearing out and reoffering, dodging and popping in space right in front of defence to take pass, triangles, holding and turning. She has to work super hard because of her lack of height against much taller defences. For the most part, she does really well, however there are still times when she seems to get stuck doing a little sideways dance behind the GK when she comes across a GK who is particularly good at holding front position, shadowing and anticipating the dodge. Does anyway have any suggestions? I am wondering if telling her to change her starting position in the circle, slightly to one side of the circle when the ball is on it''s way down to give her a definite space to drive to and then create doubt by sometimes driving out and sometimes driving back? Would love some ideas to try.

How tall is the GA? Maybe the GS could stand side on to the GK, then in a centre pass the WA will receive the pass, GS will drive out diagonally ( pass back to WA if needed), then stay out of the circle then the GA will drive in with good pace and receive the ball either from WA or GS.
